Color Grading Display

I'm struggling finding myself a decent monitoring. I'm doing more and more color grading and after effect work and so far I'm using my old CRT Sony Trinitron 19" monitor for referencing. I want to spend few bucks on a new monitor but I'm getting lost. Do I get a flatscreen computer monitor or a flatscreen TV monitor or a better CRT monitor.
So far, what I've found, and I find the most intriguing for the money I can spend (max 1000euros) is the Lacie 324 ( http://www.lacie.com/products/product.htm?pid=11034 ) but it has NTSC gamut!? Whereas I'm in PAL land and the projects I do are either standard DV def or HD 720p or 1080i. It's also on the expensive side compared to what I can afford.
I was also thinking about getting myself the Blackmagic Intensity Pro (http://www.dv.com/reviews/reviews_item.php?articleId=196603506 ) to add a HDMI output.
Well, if anyone can help me shed a little light, it would be much appreciated.
