Well, if you are going to get an LCD, you have to get a high end one (16ms or lower) if you don't want a ghosting effect in games. I have had a 25ms LCD before, and believe me, it does suck for gaming. Get a good flat-screen CRT, they are awesome and not too expensive.

always get CRT for gaming
always get CRT if there's enough space on your desk
only get LCD to save space on your desk
