ok... now it's time to look on newegg for some LCD's...

by the way, LCD's are gonna replace the CRT's in a few years... mostly because the energy issues... so if you got an LCD, you got new tech

LCD all the way. You'll be very pleased once you overcome the initial 'Oh my god, how's the response time going to hinder my gaming performance?' issue. They're cool, clear, and sexy. On top of that, you get the size as advertised. You don't get shafted out of 2" because they included the frame as part of their size spec. Sounds like a winner to me!

Plus, it'll save you a hernia a few years down the road

Take heed. Newegg reviews are biased b/c they reject bad ones. Still, looks like a nice panel!

Yeah, looks like it only comes with the analog cable. That'll jack the price up nicely.

If you want some good reviews and benchmarks check out Anandtech if you haven't already.

Saw this one on display and wow, way better image than non-glossy screens!

yeah, glossy has hell of nice image quality, except it reflects crap in your house, so if you have your monitor on the oposite side of the window, the sun might beat on it and piss you off... but just go for it... crisp clear quality... very good
