Default Good 21" CRT for gaming?

Hello all,

I'm currently using a Dell P1110 21" and it's dying, I'm currently looking at buying a used 21" P1130 Dell below for $215 US with shipping.

I figured I'd make a post and see if anyone has used this monitor or can recommend something as good or better for the same price or less. Feel free to post a link.

Any suggestions appreciated, plan to order something within the next few days.

(I don't want anything with screen burn, scratches etc are not an issue)

Q6600 @ 2.66
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
4GB XMS2 Corsair Ram
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
Evga 275 GTX
500GB Seagate Sata 2 HDD
250GB Western SATA2 HDD
Corsair 850TX Power Supply
Cooler Master Centurion 5 case
Samsung 2693HM 26" LCD
Microsoft Keyboard
Logitech MX518 Mouse

thats the one i got

just that ones refurbished A, mines grade B

its excellent for gaming you wont be disappointed

ps. i let my monitor on for 3 days without a screensaver and there is NO burnin at all

edit: but i might suggest this as it handles 2048x1536 @ 85hz, so that resolution is usable
