    I just built a new PC for a client of mine and he has asked for advice on a 15" LCD for his daughter. While the compter is rigged for gaming with nForce2 Ulta chpset, R9600 (edit:DVi, VGA ViVo,) AthlonXP 2500+, 512DDR400, SATA, etc... the young lady only needs it to produce work for her final year @ high school.

    Any advice would be most welcome:)

    You might not want limit yourself to just 15" LCD's
    I got a nice 17" Albatron LCD for $350 a couple of months ago.

    I would offer you a link but newegg doesn't seem to be selling it anymore.

    It's more of a price restriction, that is limiting the perchace to a 15" LCD, If it were me I would buy a 19" flat CRT, however it's not for me (damit.)

    What kinda price are we talking here. I looked at 15" LCD's and they ranged from $260 to $430.

    Also, do they need DVI or just VGA?

    I've never seen one.

    If the computer has DVI output, get one with DVI. It looks incredibly better than VGA when used with LCD's. I bought an NEC 1560NX to use with my mom's iMac. It's a beautiful LCD. Dell also makes some very good LCD's and sells them at very reasonable prices.

    For more than 1024x768, you are going to have to get a 17" that typically come in 1280 x 1024 resolution.
