LCD's DONT have a fixed resolution, they have a NATIVE resolution, which just means they look best in that resolution, but you can change it if you really want to.

And obviously a 17" LCD would give you the best "bang for your buck".

But seriusly, since you only have 200$ to spend, you should just get a 19" flat screen CRT. If you want a quality LCD with DVI input, you need to spend atleast 400$ or more.

Now stop asking the same questions over and over and just get yourself a damn monitor!!!

It probably depends on the person. For me, my eyes start to hurt after 20minutes on a CRT monitor. I have a Viewsonic LCD, its 17" and 8ms. I love it, but I think it was in the $300 range. No ghosting in gaming and is crystal clear.

I got myself a Samsung 930B 8ms monitor to replace my 19" CRT and haven't looked back since. Great clarity for gaming and no ghosting. I honestly don't see why certain people are holding onto the CRTs for so long. Yes, they are cheaper, but so are GeForce FX cards or 60GB hard drives. Times change.
