Default Looking for a good CRT Monitor

I'm looking for a good gaming CRT monitor that's still sharp and has high refresh rates at resolutions like 1600x1200, 1280x1024, and 1024x768 and that's in the 17 to 19 inch range.

In general, when not even considering 1600x1200, what's a good CRT for gaming? Name some monitors you use or think are good.

Thanks.

I use a Dell 17" monitor (monitor only) and it has given me great resolution and it can go up to 1600x1200. I only paid $110 for it brand new at Fry's Electronics.

Yeah mine is a dell trinitron(sony) p780 and it goes to 1600x1200 but that's at 60hz and 1280x1024 is at 75 hz, both arn't great on the eyes.

What I would really like is 1280x1024 at 100 hz or even 1600x1200 at 100 hz.
