Question Which CRT? Help Please

So i searched the forums about monitors and couldn't find exactly what i was looking for. I am pretty sure someone asked you all a question about this recently.

Anyway, i want to get a new CRT for the computer i will be building very soon. I went to tigerdirect.com and was surprised by the cheap prices on 21"/22" CRTs. I can go for a 19" but i really do want something huge. I heard the Trinitrons are the best monitors and get the best refresh rates, but i wanted to make sure and have a lot of opinions.

Ok, So here is the link to the 21"/22" CRTs.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...asp?CatId=172&

19"

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...asp?CatId=169&

So right now i was leaning toward the 21" Dell Trinitron

Another thing, is anything below 0.23 pixel pitch bad for higher resolutions? I also heard that too.

Alright, so thanks in advance for your opinions

Make sure you get one with flat tube. I suggest you get a 21in, those are Massive!

Anything below .23mm is bad on low resolutions.
