Last time (10 years) I messed with Linux you had to be careful with monitor settings - or you could fry it.

My question is can I simply change the monitor out for a better one without hurting the monitor? Will ubuntu auto detect the new monitor and update the settings?

it is supposed to default to vesa monitor if the required driver was not found.
you can install reght driver after it starts.
if X fails run X -configure and follow instructions.
most probably it will work fine. at the first attempt.
