Most monitors come separate when you buy a ready made computer system. In that link I provide you, they are separate. However, you can use your old Dell monitor for the HP PC. They are universal as long as you can use the analog RGB port (15-pin).

LCD flat panel monitors are improving. Some of the Samsung models are coming down in price, especially the 19" which I'm going to get next. I feel LCD monitors are always a step behind traditional CRT monitors, but for looks and convience, it's a good buy. With everyday computing, LCD monitor can't go wrong. Hardcore gamers and 3d people won't use LCD too much. But it will play all games on it with good graphics, just not the greatest.

Yeah, a lot of LCD monitors now have 8ms response times and 5ms. ALso to take into consideration is the contrast ratio and pixels.

I like this one:

ViewSonic VP191B Black 19" 8ms (gray-to-gray); 20ms (black-white-black, typ) LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 800:1 0.294mm Pixel Pitch

or

SAMSUNG 193P-Silver 19" 20ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 800:1 0.294mm Pixel Pitch
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001156
