OEM means that you only get the cpu, you will have to buy a heatsink and fan and you can get one for $15 to $50 depending on your needs..

I am using Viewsonic 21" (and strictly wont recommend it)

best is Iiyama (as if its available in ur area), i could have gone for iiyama, but it wasnt available in 20/21" at that time. eventually I had to buy Viewsonic, though its cool looking, thin frame wider looking screen.

for gaming, go for responce time = 16ms

contrast ration though wont effect that much, 400:1 will do good.

in CPU, what you have to buy extra is: FAN and a good thermal paste (i used Artic Silver 5, very nice performance)
Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache

LG L246WH Flatron 24"

some one can correct me if im rong but... CRT's arnt like CPU's or gfx cards, im not shur how much of a diff u would c between any CRT's witch are the same size.

all CRT's already have better brightness/contrast ratio compaird to LCD's.

some CRT's have a lower Dot Pitch... but i dont think that can be noticed by the human eye.

i got the 19" orion flat screen CRT a year or so ago for like $160. hadnt had any trouble with it wat so ever. and if i ever get another one, il prolly get an even cheeper one.

CRT's have a faster response time, are cheaper, and resolution changing is a lot better; LCD's are designed to work best at one resolution, and if this is changed the images can be kinda blurry and sometimes makes it hard to read text
