Default CRT or LCD?

Im going to be building a new comp soon, so naturally ill need a monitor to go with it. My question is, should I go with a good ol' CRT or go for the oh so nice LCD screen? I will be doing alot of gaming on the computer, so I dont know. I've heard alot about lcds not having good refresh rates or something for games, or about being better for static images, ie internet surfing etc. Is this true, and if not can someone straighten me out here? What the deal with lcds and should i go with one? thanks

LCD's Suck for gaming, go for a nice 21" CRT with True Flat Screen. OH the gaming goodness.
