check out the Viewsonics at tigerdirect.com.... sometimes they have refurbs or blems that can be fairly cheap and they're one of the best for CRT gaming... if you can spend a few more bucks you can get a sweet one but they are all basically re-branded sony's or samsung's now in the CRT market.

Just avoid the value brands like MAG and Tiger's house brand... they last a year tops i'm told.

I have never seen a monitor with a higher refresh rate than 85Hz at anything over 1024x768.

You can find them but they're in the 6-7000$ range and are for PRO modeling stations... most have been replaced by LCD's but you can still find em... as far as getting over 100mhz that's impossible... a CRT's EM Gun would melt at that rate.
