Default Need new monitor?

I have an old NEC Multisync FP950. I play alot of games and recently have been wondering if they would look better on a newer monitor. Will there be a noticable difference in clarity/ grahics if i were to buy a new lcd monitor?

LCD generally (unless u've got cash to blow) have slow MS (its like refresh times) so slower the worser (not really a word but anyway) CRTs r cheaper and generally better qual, but take up space, if u want a LCD get a low MS around 4MS not the crappy 12MS and get something decent sized. 19" is average

I wouldn't waste your money. Your monitor is not that old, plus it's a DiamondTron (high brightness).
