I have searched the forum, and have read some very intersting stuff. Most over my head. I bought a PowerMac G5, which will be here Tuesday. My purpose in posting is to get your opinion on what monitor I should buy. My budget is $500, and my primary computer use is graphic design. I am making the switch from PC to Mac. I have a NEC 24" AccuSync LCDWMCX hooked to the PC. Had it a couple of years, no problems. Seems like a good monitor, but I have never used an ACD, so I have no way to compare. I am not throwing out the PC, so I need another monitor for the Mac. Which makes more sense, buying a used ACD, or a new monitor from Brand X? Thanks for your help.
