CRT - the have a lower refresh rate which means it doesn't strain your eyes as much. The TFT's arn't advanced enough yet, in the coming years they will make it.

CRT is best

TFT give you a ghost effect if there is a lot of thing moving fast (like in Unreal lots of people running around)

Desides CRTs are a hell of a lot cheaper .

yeh crt's are better, but if dont have enough space for one, tft is a kewl solution
i use a tft and i can say, im really satisfied
it runs at 75hz, its crystal clear
and nah
the ghost thingy phenomenon never happened to me
i guess its because i have its drivers installed and it runs at the highest rate..

Any non-partisan comparison (i.e. not coming from a TFT vendor) will tell you that, for gamers, TFTs are not an option. Stick with CRTs.

For your mom to surf the web and get e-mail, TFTs are perfectly fine, of course.

Apparently no one has seen any games on the NEC1765...

I wasnt going to buy it until my roommate tried it out.

It plays all the hottest games with no ghosting..

It looks brighter and crisper than my A90F+ by viewsonic (which is a very good monitor)

Just wanted to throw that in there...
