Just wanted to throw that in there...
My brother got that monitor, then 5 days later returned it for the NEC 22" CRT. Its a couple hundred cheaper, and 10X better.

I say CRT ... theres no TFT that compares YET, we've been making CRT's far FAAAAR longer than we have TFT's.

CRT are best unless you can get a TFT LCD with a response time that is below 15ms.

My 1765 has 16ms...and I'm just speaking from experience when I say that it plays games like a mutha. My A90F+ is sweet, but I can't find the response time for it. It is also a sweet monitor, but if I had the power go out, my UPS can run my water cooled system for about 35 minutes on battery with the LCD, that time is shrunk down to 10 minutes with the CRT...

Xavier, i'm just wondering how much your monitor would cost. I'm looking for a new monitor and it has to be fairly light and small - so looks like i'm going to have to part from my precious CRT... Anyway, do you know any places hwere i could get that monitor, that shows the price in Australian dollars, i'm looking for it at the moment on www.quickbuy.com.au , www.pluscorp.com.au and www.i-tech.com.au

I'm having a hard time finding even in the states! I didnt see it on any of the sites you posted...I'm sorry.

I think I have seen it at compusa and bestbuy, but that doesnt do you too much good does it.

If you dont want your CRT to give you eye strain the Higher the refresh rate the better. Always set your CRT refresh to at least 72Mhz for larger monitors go higher.

TFT's refresh rate isn't the same, the picture is stable st default refresh rates, the response time is what is important. You'll need around 16ms to eliminate the ghosting effect in games.

I use both type of monitor, and today I just bought a 22" Sony CRT, That say's it all.
