CRT Monitor Problem - Page 2

No. Most TN panels have roughly 15ms, or nearly one frame on 60hz. Most people don't notice it, but if you play a lot of fast paced FPS games, it is very noticeable.

Some go below it, some have thrice that.

If you are an avid FPS gamer, you should definitely look for a monitor with 10ms or less input lag.

Note: response time does not describe input lag. Two completely different things. You're better off just ignoring response times completely.

Input lag is not an advertised spec. You usually find it in monitor reviews. There they hook it up side by side with a CRT (because CRTs have no input lag) and display a counter on the screens, and take pictures of the monitors with a a high shutter speed setting on a camera. Dozens of pictures. Then they compare them and calculate an average input lag for the LCD monitor.

Input lag is an issue on a plenty of monitors. Most TN panels don't have it bad though.

Unfortunately it sounds like your CRT might be on its last legs.

CRTs have their place and input lag is certainly not a myth. The most beautiful monitor I have image-quality-wise is a Samsung 275T (LCD) but the input lag is so bad that if you try to game on it, you end up feeling woozy/drunk because of the delay. I game on P1130 CRTs, usually using settings 1600x1200 @ 100Hz and wouldn't trade the fluid, responsive nature of its display for most LCDs that cost ten times more.

While the CRT could be a problem , I begun to think I might be having problem on either the CPU or the GPU as well. Updated in the original post.

A good CRT is a fine piece of a monitor, indeed. It's just a bit different than LCD. But note: It MUST be a good CRT to be worth anything.
Right on the money!
