Ok i dont know if this is true or if there is any scientific evidence for it but like pc_boy i do find an LCD monitor far more comfortable to look at for long periods of time. Because of the way they work there is no flicker and the image just seems far more balanced - even compared to some top of the range CRTs.
Perhaps someone has more researched advice on this issue but the way i see it an LCD monitor is an evenly lit panel and not beams of light fired at a screen - surely therefor this makes an LCD better for your eyes.
As for games, ok i'm not really a gamer but i do play the odd shoot-em-up now and then and have no issues with an LCD monitor - neither do any of my mates, some of whom are pretty hardcore gamers.
I run dual monitors on my computer, until recently one was an LCD panel and the other a CRT, the LCD panel was chosen as my primary monitor since it was so much nicer to look at, it took a digital input so set itself up, it didnt reflect light and shadows like the CRT did. I have now switched to dual LCD panels and claimed half my desk back from my CRT maontor - i now have space!
perhaps some of the earlier posters would like to enlighten us as to why they would choose a CRT
