Default LCD horrible performance...

Hi guys,

I have a pretty strong feeling this is a hardware issue, so hopefully you guys can help me out.

I just discovered today that my LCD screen (20" widescreen Sceptre X20wg-Naga) destroys my gaming performance.

I have been playing Team Fortress 2 at pretty much all lower than recommended settings (which was pretty much all low or medium, noAA) on a 6800GT video card at 1680x1050, with pretty bad framerates and unsmooth movement.

But, when I plugged in my stock CRT 19" monitor, I was able to play at 1600x1200 with all recommended or higher at with better framerates than the lcd!!

I have an Asus K8V-SE Deluxe motherboard, the video card is in AGP slot, I use a DVI cable for my lcd, and an analog for my crt. 3700+ amd cpu, 1gig of ram, 500w ultra psu, 500gb sata HD...

Can someone please tell me why I would get such a radical difference, and how, if possible, I can get my LCD to match my CRT performance?

Thanks a bunch

6800gt on 1680 x 1050... get at least like 8800 gts or something like that rather than your outdated 6800gt unless that game is outdated or something.

Well, TF2 is brand new... but 1600x1200 is higher res than 1680x1050, and the performance/graphics is/are like night and day... this isn't just a few framerates difference here. The only thing I changed was the monitor... Why does my LCD make my gaming performance go to crap??

well lcd shouldn't make any difference but i don't think dvi will make it lag... how about if you try using another dvi port if there is any.

Turns out it's the widescreen format, 16:10 and 1680x1050... It's crazy, I had no idea widescreen would be so detrimental to my performance.

I was about to say, widescreen ratio is going to eat that 6800 alive.

and TF2 is a just released online multiplayer (that kicks $!#)
