LCD is the correct decision :-) Your eyes will thank you for it. An 
option for one expensive screen is two cheaper ones: 17" screens 
typically give 1280 x 1024, so two side by side would give you 2560 x 
1024, or if you pivot them 2048 x 1280, which is not bad at all. You'd 
of course need a second display adapter, or a dual-head one, but they 
are quite cheap. Three 15" screens at 1024 x 768 would be nice too...
