Interesting. I use Linux with 'nvidia-settings' to control my GeForce
8400 GS card's output. I dont see a feature like this but perhaps I
could do it manually in my X config file.

19" for $110 http://www.amazon.com/Acer-quot-Wide-Screen-LCD-Monitor/dp/B001BTWSIG/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1244562261&sr=1-11

20" for $140 http://www.amazon.com/HP-2009M-20-Inch-LCD-Monitor/dp/B001UHOX2S/ref=pd_cp_e_2

22" for $170 http://www.amazon.com/Acer-V223-WBD-Widescreen-Monitor-Black/dp/B0017AR13G/ref=pd_cp_pc_1

Not bad. Probably pretty low quality machines, but also probably
better than my more-than-six-or-seven-year-old 17" CRTs. :)
