i've got a philips 201P 21" CRT - excellent monitor, i have no intention of
replacing it with an LCD (quality tends to be crap unless you spend a fortune,
with fuzzy unreadable text, and they give me headaches.  i'd rather have a 15"
CRT than a 19" LCD).

maybe in a few years LCD monitors will be good enough to consider as a
replacement.....i certainly like the minimal physical space that they take up.

ok, that's what i'll do then.  new card for the desktop, and the
matrox goes into the vdr box.

for CPU, sounds like any modern CPU will do.  i'll consider
getting a low-power mobile variant.
