I finally got a new monitor today, the AOC 9 Glr 19", and it friggin' rocks, for a mere $265. Even though it is capable of 1600x1200px, I'm running it at a bitching 1280x960px, 32-bit.
Oh, and one more thing: my previous monitor was connected with an old extension cable. After having consulted the AOC website, I realized that the old cable was not shielded, producing weird shadows and artifacts. Anyway, I see you now in crystal-clear RGB!
