CRT are better for gaming. because of the no ghosting and stuff like that. the only people who have the money go with LCD gaming monitors. 300 bucks and up

O cool i never knew that, but i would still go with eVGA or leadtek

I hate to tell you this but the X2 3800+ uses the Manchester core not the Toledo.
