FPS difference in CRT and LCD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been having problems with my new monitors since I built my new rig...one of them being the fact that I decided to buy a Syncmaster 226BW because of the hype it has on OCN...

I'm not very happy right now...

I just recently found out the display inside it was not in fact made by Samsung, but by Chi Mei (CMO) over in China because Samsung had too high of a demand and started outsourcing the manufacturing.

This explains why the brightness is darker up at the top of the monitor and brighter at the bottom.

Also, on an unrelated sidenote my Monitor is problem dieing on me because it keeps acting bizarre (Only way I can describe it is how a CRT reacts when you hit the Degauss button) So this just keeps getting more entertaining.

That being said I've found a couple of points to consider:

-LCDs cant do more than 60FPS
-LCDs also seem to have a lot more bugs to them than CRTs
-CRTs have higher Refresh Rates
-CRTs *Supposedly* suffer from "Tearing" just as LCDs do
-CRTs aren't widescreen and weigh a ton
-LCDs are widescreen and dont take up much space

That being said do you guys think I should just return this thing and buy a nice CRT off Newegg or something? I was also told the 8800GTX doesn't show its true colors unless at 1680x1050

I'm just so discouraged right

An LCD's refresh rate has abosolutely nothing to do with how many frames per second it shows. It's basically just there so that Windows has something to refer to. The response rate is what you look for in LCD's, not refresh.

Maybe get a different LCD, preferably one with 1680x1050?
