Oh definitely LCD are more vibrant than CRT. Thats really the only draw back for me. I still play some games that only have full screen res. , but then if i play games with wide screen I'm at a disadvantage. Guess the guy above that said to just switch between monitors depending on what your playing i guess.

I have a 22" CRT and I love it!!! But my wallet hates it... it sucks a lot of juice! About 150Kw per hour!!! I am going to break down and get a 21"-ish LCD once I get back from deployment.

If you aren't paying for your electric bill then the CRT would be fine... but like some have said, it's personal preferrence. Be greedy and take the CRT!
