Where do I even begin on a good monitor for post production?

I'm thinking of getting a monitor to do accurate color correction and other post production stuff at home. I currently edit with FCP 7. I have no idea where to begin, what to tihnk about, what to look for. Are there differences between the types of monitors? I know this is a painfully vague question.....but what would be a decent monitor that gets the job done but doesnt break the band? I'll pay for quality; I just dont need top of the line.

I use my Sony SD professional video monitor on a standard definition S-VIDEO feed to monitor my colour. The simultanbeous feed comes out from my Matrox MXO2 and enables me to get a much greater life out of the original $1500 investment for the monitor.
