    What would be a good monitor for a PC based entertainment Center?

    I am building a PC as an Entertainment Center for my house. I am having trouble figuring out what would be a good monitor for it. I would like something that is bigger than 21" but under $2000 US. Any suggetions would help.

    Check on pricewatch... They have Sony 24inch monitors for $1699.

    Hope that helps you!

    You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)

    Yep, the Sony at 24" is about the only large CRT with the resolution to make a decent computer monitor.

    LCD projectors bright enough for home entertainment purposes used to start at about $4000... haven't checked in several months. One that does XGA or so... and good brightness... expect to pay about 10k.

    Good luck is about right.

    Infocus LP130 goes for $3500. Too much, I think.
