I run both the CPU and the monitor through a line interactive UPS and have
never had a monitor die or fail in any way. Of course, I don't buy cheap
monitors, and the oldest monitor I currently own is a seven year old Sony
Multiscan 17se II. I believe the adage "you get what you pay for" especially
holds true in monitors.My latest monitor is a Sony GDM F520. I doubt your
local store will carry a quality monitor.
