Thumbs up Help me choose... something else...

I'm looking at buying an LCD monitor, but don't have unlimited cash allowance (if you know what I mean ) I found this at new egg. Let me know if this is good or not. If you would buy it for the price.

The fastest LCD you will find is about 12ms.. At that "speed" you will not get anymore than 100-150 fps. After that, you will see ghosting. Not only do CRT's have better quality, they are also 10x faster. A typical CRT has a response time of 0ms, or instantaneous.

The ONLY reason to have an LCD is to save space..

Take a look at the Samsung 997DF..
