I planned to get a 19" one. At first I wanted a CRT, because I had bad experiences with my friends' TFTs, but they were generic screens, and early models as well, with lots of flickering and other bad things produced by their high response time. But nowadays, things have changed a bit. I saw a 19" ViewSonic screen and it looked quite good, so I'd probably go for that one (or maybe a LG). As for the graphics card, I plan to get a Radeon X800. It's not exactly using cutting edge technology, but for my games and the different emulators I use, it's more than enough.
