Default What monitor?

I will eventually need to buy a new monitor for my soon to be built system. I will be doing a lot of gaming, but don't wanna spend 800 bucks on a monitor. I want a 17 or 19 inch CRT or LCD (what better considering both quality and price). Can anyone recomment something?

I use a Samsung 997 DF. Great resolution and picture. And it only ran me $280 canadian.

Ive tried a couple others, and find it's the best in its price range.

CRT for sure

Whats your price range?

Check aroud newegg and you'll find alot of nice ones

You can get a 21" CRT for around $450, but you'll need a very good video card to actually play games at 1600x1200 and above

19" range from about $160 to $250, but have the max resolutio the 21" have, usually they top out at about 1600x1200 and run optimal at 1280x1024
