I've been considering getting an LCD, but I can't find one that has a high res for less than $700. I've been hearing that CRT is the way to go for gaming anyway. Correct?

Abit IP35 Pro
Core 2 Duo 2.2ghz
2gig Crucial Ballistix Ram
PC Power & Cooling 510
2.33ghz Core 2 Duo Macbook Pro

CRT's tend to have better colors, meaning, colors shown more correctly. I know that when I went from CRT to LCD at first it took a bit getting used to, but now it works great really. They are nice and light and compact for the most part, that's why I like it, but yes overall technically a CRT will display a game more crisp and clear.
