Is there much of a difference in sharpness in a 19 inch crt running at 1600x1200 and a 17 inch tft flat panel running at 1280x1020

1600X1200 on a 19in CRT (18in viewable) is going to be extremely hard to read. Everything will be really small and you will probably have to squint to read text. My friend has a 22in CRT and 1600X1200 makes everything look small.

If I were you, I would go with the 17in flatpanel and 1280X1024

You can always increase the DPI, text and Icon size to fix that problem.

What is the response time of this flat panel? If you are gaming and it's over 12ms you should stick wtih the CRT.

I've got two 19" CRTs @ 1600x1200 and I don't have any problems reading text either. My main issue with LCDs is that they're too expensive and have low res. You can buy 2 (and a half) 19" flatscreen CRTs which will do 1600x1200@76Hz for the price of 1 20" LCD which will do 1600x1200@16ms. If you want a low response time (8ms), you could buy 4 CRTs for the same price...

Hmmm... 76Hz=>13ms : 16ms=>62.5Hz 12ms=>83.3Hz 8ms=>125Hz
Not sure it the refresh rate of a CRT and response time of an LCD are comparable like that, but I don't recall people having issues with low refresh rates on CRTs other than it strains your eyes.
