Reasons not to upgrade your monitor
In the corner of my home office sits Snowbooks' server. Like all right-thinking computers, it has a name, and its name is Serenity after the ship in Joss Whedon's superb Firefly series. Since we have to do stuff to the server only rarely*, we don't really need it to have a monitor, but it's so handy to have a little one plugged in the whole time. We use an old, small, useless monitor for this purpose, and it does the job fine. However, it also serves (heh) a far more important purpose: big cat warmer.
