In my opinion serif fonts look best and are easiest to read when the resolution is high. But at low resolution non-serif are better. So for 10 pnt at 75 dpi I'd certainly use a non-serif font; and for 12 pnt at 120 I'd certainly use a serif font. I like to work at 120dpi on a monitor that pretty much resolves the pixels and then my first choice is 'nimbus mono l'. It is actually coded as a proportional font but is in fact mono-spaced. You'll find it in the fonts provided in gnu-ghostscript and can be fed directly to the X fontlist.
