Ok, see this LCD monitor here, people keep telling me to get an CRT, but this LCD seems to be just as good as any CRT, It's refresh rate seems just as good or even better than a CRT. Also, if someone can give me a solid reason to go with CRT, which would you recommend?

I will be using this for gaming, and some of the usual stuff.

16ms refresh rate is ok but still not as quick as CRT... You can get LCD that is 8ms refresh but there like expensive.

I doubt you would see any ghosting on that monitor and it has a good max resolution 1600x1200.

I say if you want that monitor go for it.
