    Well, the Pi has HDMI out, so you can shop around for a monitor with either a HDMI port, or DVI port if you are willing to spend £1.85 on an adapter. Asking which monitor is cheapest is like asking where is the cheapest place to buy chips.
    I think you should be asking what type (1080p, 19" or 24"?) of monitor you should be using and then perhaps asking about prices.

    Below is a list of supported resolutions from its Wikipedia page:

    1. Supported digital video resolutions are: 640 × 350 EGA; 640 × 480 VGA; 800 × 600 SVGA; 1024 × 768 XGA; 1280×720 720p HDTV; 1280 × 768 WXGA Variant; 1280 × 800 WXGA Variant; 1280 × 1024 SXGA; 1366 × 768WXGA Variant; 1400 × 1050 SXGA+; 1600 × 1200 UXGA; 1680 × 1050 WXGA+; 1920 × 1080 1080p HDTV; 1920 × 1200 WUXGA.[84] Also to be supported are the generation of 576i and 480i composite video signals forPAL-BGHID, PAL-M, PAL-N, NTSC and NTSC-J[101]
