Does the 450 have a video card?

If the 450 has a video card with a standard VGA/SVGA connector you should be able to use most any high quality monitor. You will need a Sun keyboard/mouse.

So you mean I can install ATI or Nvidia VGA " for PC's " card in it?
and this way I  do not need an adaptor to convert from ADI to VGA?
Thanks

No, you'll need a video card specifically made for the 450.

Solaris includes the Gui stuff. You'll have to add Samba (http://us3.samba.org/samba/) to the box to "network with Windows"
