It's running on a new build, but before I used an 8 year-old Dell 15" CRT and the 9" screen on my Mini 9. As for the new, it's an Asus VH22H. 22", 1080p with HDMI, DVI and VGA-in.I'm gonna be in exactly the same situation you are in, ONLY WHEN THE DAMN THING GETS HERE!!!!!

21.5" 1080p ASUS Designo MS226H w/ HDMI and VGA output.
