I would like to upgrade my monitor to an LCD ( TFT ??? ) Monitor,
however I'm concerned about spending the money to then discover that
it won't work with my suse box....

Are there any considerations that need to be made in choosing an lcd
monitor... i.e. what happens if it not in the list of know monitors in
YaST ? I also noticed that some monitors say required os are windows /
mac ??? aren't monitors os independent ?

Lastly, how easy is it to actually swap monitors over in linux, I mean
as long as suse knows which graphic card is being used then swapping a
monitor should not be a problem ?

OT question... I've been told to look for a monitor withe + 1.3
million pixels, but when I look at the specs I don't see such details
??? is this supposed to be something else, like colors maybe ?
