Default Monitor Help

Blah so confused with monitors these days. I was just wondering what the general opinion on gaming monitors is. I'm needing something relatively cheap, whether it be a CRT or a flatscreen, I just want to be able to game with no problems. My current monitor has a max refresh rate of 60hz which is KILLING my eyes. So any suggestions or opinions would be wonderful.

Take a look at the Samsung Syncmaster series

Their flatscreen CRT's (if your thinking LCD, you dont want LCD)

This is the monitor that I am using right now. Great picture, great price. I actually picked it up a buck or two cheaper in the store. And the best part? If it fries or dies, I can carry right back in and they'll hand me a new one, no RMA, no hassle.
