One thing to remember about purchasing a monitor is that it doesn't lose value as fast as all of your other computer system components. Advancements are still made in monitors, but the technology doesn't change anywhere near as fast as say CPUs and RAM. In fact, by purchasing a high quality monitor, you most likely will be able to use it on the next computer that you purchase. Shortly, I'll get into what qualities you should look for in a monitor, but first I want to say that monitors are very subjective to the viewer. The saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", applies very much to monitor purchases. While it's important to pay attention to the "numbers" of a monitor, your final decision should always lie with what looks best to you. It's your monitor anyway, and you'll be the one staring at it for the next few years.

Let's start off with how a monitor works.
