OK, So the title may be a bit misleading but... I need to know an answer to this question!

Q: Do you know anywhere I can get a DVI computer monitor realitively cheaply... That works of course.

http://www.geeks.com/products......sp?cat=MON -- I personally recommend Geeks.com. Right now they have a refurb 17" for $69. This is the best price I"ve found with guaranteed legitimacy.

Can I suggest including mention of one's country when either requesting or supplying information about equipment for use with the Raspberry Pi - some do include in their ident, but not all -  perhaps early in the thread title would be a good place to include it?.

Availablility and cost vary considerably between countries - including whether 'local taxes' are included in the quoted price, or not.

If you happen to be in the UK and have £94 to spare on a 21.5" HDMI, you could try:

Its nice to look at whilst waiting for my rpi to turn up.

I live in England so I"d prefer something in GBP rather than dollars. Also buying from a site which is based somewhere other thank the UK you don"t have the roghts of consumer law. For example: If I buy something and I don"t get it I can get a full refund. BTW I am an 11 year old but I do know alot about computers and technoledgy so don"t treat me like a novis!

Take a look a Ebuyers monitor section. Some decent prices there.

you're going to need your parents help then - I see plenty of sun-100 quid cheapo small flatscreen TV's (with HDMI connections) in supermarkets etc - I'd go somewhere you can touchy/feely and take away there and then (and take back if it doesn't work)

Here's a UK site selling a DVI monitor for 60 GBP (72 GBP with VAT)

http://www.misco.co.uk/Cat/821.....t=PriceAsc

I could find these way cheaper in the US, but I understand you want a UK site. ($100/$117 w/ shipping and taxes is a bit steep)

Morgancomputers has some cheap screens, best to call and ask if any are DVI compatible though.
