Indeed, claiming that a crt is much better for gaming, isn't "that" true anymore.. there are plenty of lcds screen with low ms, so no ghosting there. I got a lcd screen, did notice ghosting in the beginning, but i love it, it's so sharp

look it up yourself, crts are still better... that doesnt mean lcds are bad, quite the contrary, lcds are great, but crts are better

but Im also a graphic designer... if you dont do anything that really requires a crt, then stick with what works for you

indeed, exactly why I said stick with what works for you... I would like to set up multi lcds for my workstation but crts, at the moment, are just better for what I do

gator: you could always put your desk right against the wall, cut a hole in the wall and push half the crt into the hole, voila, mini crt...

or just install/get a desk with a sliding keyboard table something like that, my set up work pretty well and i have crt and still plenty of space for all my candy wrappers, bowl, d-rug baggies, cd's, 5.1 surround, nostromo, u get the idea i just used the slider for the mouse and nostromo and set the keyboard under monitor

I want an 1920x1200 CRT. We have a Hi-Def CRT tv, why can't they do that for monitors. Thats the only reason i would want that 24" Dell LCD.

I wouldnt want a 1900x1200 monitor because you definately couldn not play games at the res unless you have GTX's in SLI at a resonable framerate....my new 1280x720 27" will be perfect for my needs becasue I still get HDTV and I dont need to get another GFX card in order to run games with the framerate I want, and it's slim

So I killed a nest of bird with 1 stone

I play all my games at 1600x1200, plenty of high end games and they run just fine at my comp

I want a multi monitor setup with each monitor having a res above 1600... that way all the audio and graphic work I do can have the biggest layout possible... its annoying working on 1600x1200 wallpapers and working in audio environments when Im at 1600x1200, too much damn scrolling and closing/ reopening dialogs...

Before my new monitor for x-mas I was running 2x P1110 21" Flat CRT's. I absolutely love them. I am currently running my Sony 24" WS and one of my P1110s on my main computer. The 2ndary (P1110) also being my monitor for my server, b/c it has 2 inputs on it. Until the price drops dramatically on LCD's I will stick with my CRT's as I have plenty of desk space.
