Photoshop, you can change the text and save a new one everytime, it's easy.

Gimp, photoshop, paintshop, you can make one out of MS paint if you wanted, but the tools aren't there. I made mine in like 5 minutes, you can tell by how shi**y it is. I'll make a new one once I feel like taking the time to do so.

CRT

- Handles resolutions perfectly, capable of high resolutions and no warping
- Has the best range of colors, deeper blacks
- Has no ghosting and doesn't "burn in" images that stay on screen too long
- Most likely will have no dead or stuck pixels on the screen, but glass can scratch.
- Very common to buy used for low price, but uncommon to buy retail.

LCD

- Much smaller than CRT
- Uses a lot less power than CRTs
- Easier on the eyes for some people.
- Most look sleek, where as a lot of older CRTs look bulky and ugly (like mine)
- Risk of dead or stuck pixels, scratches are a worry too.
- High resale value compared to CRT, although there are hardcore CRT fans
- Running on non-native resolutions may "warp" the display image, because it uses physical pixels.
- More expensive than CRTs

I am currently using a 19" DELL CRT monitor with a max resolution of 1600x1200, has 2 small lines of dead pixels, but almost impossible to notice in gaming/movies, espeicially if running 1600x1200. Only cost me 5 bucks, can't complain.

I do plan on getting a LCD probably christmas, I want widescreen badly but the worry for game support bothers me. If only BF would support it natively...

I have a old Sony Trinatron flat CRT or something like that. Its 21" and looks great. I can set the resolution all the way up to 2560 and it looks great at any setting. Only downside is its huge and weighs around 115lbs! Weighs more than a 27" TV.

Thats actually the way they came for some reason. I believe you have the same kind of monitor I do, its just a rebadged sony.
