15ms or lower on response time for gaming. Are you gaming? If you are, you would be better off getting a good 19" or 21" CRT unless you have a fortune to spend on a gaming LCD.

With the refreash rate. the LCD screens arnt as quick as the CRT so if you want to play the latest games stick to a CRT. A few reviews I have read show that the SONY SDM-X73 17-inch LCD is a very good screen. Its a 1280 x 1024 at 75 hertz screen with DVI and 2 x VGA inputs. But the latest Viewsonic 18" LCD is real good too, I have forgotten the product number but I will find it for you.

oh ok . . .

i found a good 19" lcd at a local computer store with a 12ms refresh rate - its about $500

i think thats a good deal, considering that a crt would eat up all the space (or lack thereof) on my desk
