The IBM 5154 is IBM's EGA monitor model and will probably be the most
common.  At home, I use a Princeton Graphics HX-12E.  There are other
third party monitors, such as the TVM (Taiwan Video & Monitor) MD-3.

The IBM 5154 looks like its IBM CGA counterpart, except that on the
5154 the IBM badge reads "IBM Enhanced Color Graphics" instead of "IBM
Personal Computer Color Display".

If you knew specific models or guide me to look for, then I could tell
you. Otherwise someone more familiar with the monitors in the warehouse
and with how to tell what is EGA capable could answer.
