With your comp specs, it has to have an agp slot. Here is a great price on a 9800 pro that you cannot possibly pass up! http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...alog=48&depa=0

well i have read in many places that on LCD monitors the refresh rate is slower than those of CRT .. but my LCD monitor is 75hz rr
and when i checked other CRT moitors i saw 68hz 70 hz and many like that...not one that i saw on futureshop.ca was over 75?

what do u think is better....LCD or CRT ( dont consider the price...pretend they cost the same...what would u get?)
