I want to use a LCD monitor as a TV. What do I need to do to make this dream come true?

I've been browsing newegg and Dell, and have noticed that LCD in the sizes I want (19'-24') are cheaper than TV's in the same price range. So, it got me thinking that I might want to just use an LCD monitor as my second TV.
I don't need HDTV capability or the ability to hook up a cable box. I just want to hook up a DVD player to watch movies and TV shows.
My question is what do I need to make this happen? I've seen some old threads from 2005-07 that have several suggestions for products that are no longer made or outdated. There may also be some new methods that have emerged in that time.
