never seen a monitor with a 'bnc' input. These are circular with only two contacts, not enough to carry a PC video signal. The only two inputs for a monitor I know of are standard 'D-sub (yes that's one you have provided a link to), and the more recent 'DVI' input which is similar in shape to D-sub but has more pins. From what I've read on the forums, DVI is not miles better than D-sub, certainly not worth the expense of a new graphics card if your current one doesn't have a DVI output.
