My BENQ V773 has, for several months, been showing signs of going 'terminal' some day: a periodic 'zap' across the screen. Question to self: buy new monitor now and wonder how long old monitor would have lasted OR wait some indefinite time when it will die in the middle of something crucial :-(
I'm presently looking at getting an LG L225WT (they're cheap at the moment because I think they've been superseded) but I'm a bit nervous about moving from the tried (CRT technology) to the untried (LCD).
The Linux box I run comprises:-
Motherboard: ASUS A7V8X-MX SE with VIA KM400 and VIA VT8235 CE chipset with VIA UniChrome 2D/3Dgraphics core and AGP slot. (Not sure what all that means, of course.)
AMD Athlon XP 2800+
Werewolf (kernel 220.127.116.11-57.fc8)
Can I expect to plug in the LG L225WT and have it run "out of the box"?
If not, what are some alternatives? Yes I know F8 is so yesterday, and no, I can't just buy a whole new system right now :-)
Do I *need* a video card? (No I don't play games.)
Any help here would be appreciated.
