AFAIK most CRTs are great for gaming, now LCDs are another thing.

Lower dot pitch is better.

lol a 15 inch for 150!!! The most expensive 19 inch at newegg is only like 209 or 219 or somethin. Anything below a 17" is just too small. And 150 for a USED 15" is just crazy! Are we talking US dollars or a diff currency cuz if its USD then thats just crazy.

There isnt really a market for crt's with less than a .25 diagonal dot pitch. Stay away from the .20 samsung....that said, heres some good ones to check out:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116281

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116201

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116282

the third ones recommended resolution is 1600x1200 at 77hz, which is pretty sweet. i would go for that one, if you can afford it.
