Save the $200. and gather up enough to replace that slow LCD. You have a refresh rate of 16ms..... you are blurring up on your games, no matter how good a VC you install. You want at least 8 or better, and you want DVI. Almost any CRT will give you a 0 refresh rate or better. A Cheap CRT is almost always better than a Good LCD for gaming.
