[ubuntu-uk] OT : Need stuff

Hey,

My computer monitor just died. :( Booo. So I'm in the market for a new
TFT screen. Just wanted to garner some opinions about good value
monitors.

Also I don't think my current graphics card can handle a larger
screen, it can only just cope with basic desktop effects! So I'll
likely be needing a new graphics card too. Now I know this means going
with ATI or nVidia, both of which have either rubbish open drivers, or
dodgy evil closed ones. I've used nVidia before, and they seem to be
less painful. However I again have no idea about which graphics cards
are good value.

It'd be great if there were any commercial cards with open drivers
that'd be great. Essentially I'm lazy, and open drivers tend to be
less hassle.

Any ideas?

Ciarán
