Unfortunately if you _really_ want to see what you're getting, you'll
probably need to take your video card as well :-)

I only have a 15" Philips monitor (very nice by 15" standards, but still
only 15") and thought it was the limiting factor. Then I bought myself a
new TNT2 card and the improvement in visual quality was _very_
noticeable. It's no good seeing your monitor in the shop if the shop has
a much better video card than you do :-)
