    While they are hard to find nowadays, there are still a few non wide format screens still avaiable.  

    You didn't specifiy what size or resolution you prefer, but here is a SXGA (1280x1024) (5:4) 17"

    At newegg go to monitors and choose advanced and choose no for the widescreen option. You can also further filter them by choosing 19" and choosing 1 for DVI.

    Ok, here is a 19" with a DVI:

    Since you said that you wanted a 5:4 ratio, there is only 1 standard screen resolution matching that, which is SXGA or 1280x1024 - most other "square" screens are 4:3.  So if you search for a 19" SXGA with DVI you'll find what you're looking for.
