Needing a cheap computer monitor. Can anyone recommend a store I can get a cheap monitor ($30-$60 range) at in the Atlanta area? Needs to be at least 17 inches. Thanks.

BrandsMart. You won't find the greatest selection, but what they have is usally the cheapest.

I bought a 17" digital/analog LCD flat panel for cheap money there last year. I had looked just about everywhere and their price was quite a bit less.

Microcenter which is in Gwinnett (Pleasant Hill near GP Mall), and Marietta (Powers Ferry Rd) usually has some blowout deals on monitors. I've found 20" widescreen monitors from Acer there for $99 and smaller ones for less.

anna electronics off of 85 (norcross/duluth) used to have a large selection of discarded corporate electronics. if they are still in business, it might be worth the looking into

I assume you've checked the Microseconds store in Sandy Springs? Besides the other places mentioned, there's a cluster of small storefront computer stores, many of whom sell used systems and peripherals, along McDonough Blvd and Dawson Blvd in Norcross (just east of I-85, on the south side of Jimmy Carter Blvd, near the Varsity). They change names and come and go with some frequency, so it's hardly worthwhile mentioning any in particular. If you're so inclined, it could be worth a drive over there to scout around.

I'd say your best bet would be Craigslist.

Craigslist. If you don't need LCD you can probably get one for almost free. I have an old monitor I'd like to get rid of and I am sure I am not alone.

Emory University has a surplus center on Clifton Road that sells off pre-used computer equipment, office furniture, etc for next to nothing.
