Not just the crazy settings, but you basically have to buy at least another $1000 in GPUs each time you upgrade
. If you add them up over the lifespan of the monitor, that's quite a lot of money to spend just to play video games. At 1920x1200 you can get away with spending a lot less.
Also, and I can only speak for myself here, but I prefer gaming on CRTs anyway. Sure, they're big and heavy and what not, but they're pretty cheap and offer the best performance possible in games. Plus, as your GPU's "age", you can always turn the resolution down a notch or two and still get a clear picture out of it.
Then again, I don't imagine many people use their computers ONLY for games. So it's kind of a useless discussion Edited by Manyak - 7/17/11 at 10:08pm
