id have to agree that lcds are soooo much nicer on the eye, when i use cheap
crts these days i tend to get irritated eyes, only problem with lcd that i
would warn anyone about is the color reproduction is not up to scratch yet
on most models. you just cant beat crts for this. saying that i have heard
of lacie models that 'apparently' are as good but i dont have a grand to
spare to find out :)

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...
