get another 17" crt
or if u want LCD, make sure it is 24bit(16.7million colours), not 18bit (16.2million colours)

Definitely a crt if you have a budget. Think you might be able to get a 19 inch with that price.
1. lcd at that price range has much lower contrast (unless you spend more money for the 1:500 ratio) i.e. most crt can show better range of tones with higher contrast ratio
2. 15" normally has a resolution of 1024 x 768 which is very limited.
Buy lcd unless space is a concern for you. If most of your stuffs need photo editing, the crt is the choice with your budget.

Sharp, Samsung, Viewsonic.
I wouldn't want to recommend Philips as many around me who purchase it facing many problems now.
