How does that work??? I thought I would just change over the Monitor plug but it is hard wired into the old CRT Monitor Do I need another cord if so which one?? its a Samsung (http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=48404&crumb=10003-10137-13818-13815)

It says "D-sub PC input" in the ad.

Presumably its a standard VGA 15 pin, if so any standard VGA monitor cable

But it's a bit low in resolution for a 20" monitor (800 x 600), so it could be disappointing. OK as a TV though.

I see the warehouse had 26" widescreen LCD TVs for $1,799 with both VGA and DVI inputs, 1024 x 768 resolution.
