Modernized $CRT/$ Terminal

Has anyone here used a monochrome phosphor CRT with a modern machine? Say, a monitor with a 9-pin serial/re9/rs232 cable with a more modern PC. Also, this will just be a terminal screen. Possibly with w3m images. Here are some options I've thought up. I haven't picked out a monitor yet.
These adapters are common. Don't know if they would work.
CGA video card output or other period correct, oem matched card
Don't know how the fuck I would use this on a modern board.
Some other 9 pin display video output
''Maybe there is an old PC with Core Duo or Pentium with serial display? I was born in '96, so I'm not too savvy on 20 year old graphics hardware'
I know that the green Macintosh CRT's are pretty cheap and use a 9-pin, but the pin out is proprietary. Chime in if you have experience with these things! Am I over thinking this?
