I'm trying to determine a good monitor to buy, CRT or LCD doesn't matter to me, however I am an avid gamer and I want a monitor that will give me good gaming performance, my computer is a decent gaming rig with a Geforce 7900GT, however my monitor is an old 17 inch CRT and its dying on me.

If I go LCD, what should I look for there? I notice there are response times listed for LCD monitors, between 2ms and 8 ms for different ones, would that make a large difference while gaming?

Also if you have a decent gaming monitor that is hopefully not too expensive, say less than $225 or so, please list it.

Any help is appreciated

some ppl like the wide screen some dont. personaly, i love it,i dont think i could ever go back to using a non widescreen monitor. i love it for gaming.


my lcd has a responce time of 8ms.i have never experiences "ghosting"
make sure you get one that is dvi. the one i have has 3 inputs, 1 dvi and 2 vga inputs, but did not come with i dvi cable i bought it seratly
