Smile Computer monitor question???

I have an old monitor (the Envision EN7410e) and am wondering if it'll be good with a gaming computer? It has a
1280 x 1024 res and 8ms response rate on a
17in LCD screen. will this be good for games like Skyrim, Crysis 2, Fallout, Portal 2, ect? My computer can handle it, but will it ghost and look bad on my monitor? if not, can you list something that might be good?I have an old monitor (the Envision EN7410e) and am wondering if it'll be good with a gaming computer?

try it out and see.
1280 x 1024 is quite low these days. but everyone have different definition of "looking good". what I think looks good on my monitor, you may not.
best thing to do is to try it out yourself

PS I too have a old 1280 x 1024 17" LCD monitor from back in the days, MVA panel. Aside from the resolution being low, its still looks better than my other "HD" TN LCD monitors.

We need some grammatical guidelines.
