For CRTs, you almost have to go eBay these days. Newegg has some, but the selection isn't that great. Most manufacturers have sadly dumped CRT production in favor of LCDs. I had the Samsung 997DF 19" which was an EXCELLENT gaming monitor at 1024x768 resolution. Picture has imperfections using Windows apps, however. I dont know if this is the case with all flat CRTs.

I hear Sony Trinitrons are rated real high as well as certain NEC models.
