We need a little more information before anybiody can give you an answer.
Please let us know what kind of computer you have, A custom built? one like a Dell or HP? a Laptop or Notebook?

If a custom built, the manufacturer and model of the Motherboard, IE. Asus Intel socket board or an Biostar AMD socket board.
If you have an add on video card? the manufacturer and model, IE. Gigabyte ATI Redeon 5750

I agree with the mykyl - we need specifics to be specific.

However, since your computer did support a CRT, we know your computer/graphics solution supports analog graphics and therefore, most likely has a D-Sub (standard 15-pin VGA) monitor cable connection. You will, therefore, need to get an LCD monitor that supports analog input too via D-Sub or with an adapter. However, analog support is phasing out, so you may have to shop around. I would recommend you buy a monitor that supports both analog and digital so you can use that monitor well into the future.

Also, if you do find a monitor that you want but it doesn't support VGA you can always buy an adapter. Most of them go from VGA to DVI like this one here Adapter. You also could always upgrade your graphics card so it can support DVI or HDMI.

Again though, it would be easier to help you if we had your system specs. If you need help figuring out your specs just ask and we can tell you how to go about doing that.
