so would a 19" LCD be bigger than a 19' CRT?

Does this look like a great LCD becuase I'd like to have a 19'LCD if the answer is yes on the question aboave.

Also what is it called when you look in some LCD's from like the bottom and sides and the screen goes all darkish. And do these moniters that you reccomended have that effect

P.S. I need a reply really soon

19 inch lcd monitors dont make great gaming monitors why? because they have 25 ms response times which will slow down you game a little bit 16 and 12 ms repsonse times are best for gaming

would you recommend the 17 inch monitor on the link that poipo gave?

Also what is it called when you look in some LCD's from like the bottom and sides and the screen goes all darkish. And does the 17inch moniter that poipo reccomended have that effect. Or is there even a way to tell.

You want the "BEST" buy an NEC, they are not for the timid. BUt will only be a little more then that hitachii. Im not sure what the effect is your talking about but they probably both have them. Either monitor will due.

This LCD moniter looks kick butt. It says in the reviews that there is no ghosting what so ever and in games it runs beautifly, and it supports DVI

My olny last question is 17 " is big enough?

Thanks in advance
