The Mac Mini should work with your monitor.

It will work with the monitor, however, I suggest you upgrade to fully appreciate the graphics in Tiger.

If that is an old CRT monitor, it probably looks better than most LCDs available today.

I have a 1998 Viewsonic 21" P810 Professional Series CRT that completely schools the heck outta any LCD under $1500...

My Mac Mini has a 19" widescreen Viewsonic LCD attached and it is excellent. (The Mini is a back-up machine)

My main computer is a G5 with a 23" ACD. This is used for professional image editing and it is more than capable.

Lots of new LCD monitors are every bit as usable for Image manipulation and high quality graphic work as older CRT's and don't take up huge amounts of room.
