I'm sort of a newb when it comes to monitors...
Anyway, after three years I'm still using the 15 inch CRT that came with my Dell Dimension. It's branded by Dell although there is a good chance it was actually manufactured by someone else, I guess. It's a good monitor except I can never get the image exactly lined up with the CRT's edges but that's okay; it's a small distortion.
Anyway. I'm looking for a 19" monitor because I'm getting more into gaming and graphical arts than ever. I also enjoy watching movies on my computer and, as you can imagine, it's kind of painful to do so on my current monitor. If I could get somone's help in recommending a new monitor, that would be fantastic.
-Either a CRT OR a very, very, very fast LCD screen
-If it's CRT, a flat screen would be nice but it's not essential
-If it's CRT, it would be nice to have it take up the least amount of room possible but that's not essential
-Good/great image clarity/brightness and color correctness
-Less than $300
If any such monitor exists, and is of quality make, I would really like to know of it. I'm hoping to get some deals too now that the Christmas sales are appearing. Also, if something comes close to what I want but not exactly perfect then that's fine too.
Thank you guys so much!
