    and I just ordered a Hitachi CML174B 17" LCD. rated as the best gaming LCD's out. :cool: :big grin:

    but for now I'm using a very old Dell 15" CRT with 60 hertz refresh. the viewable is like 12" :ugh:

    and the grays and whites all look the same :wtc:

    I've found most LCD's suck at gaming, I'll stick to a nice big CRT. :)

    I agree. but I don't use my system strictly for gaming. I only play Counter Strike and occasionally Hitman 2 and/or Splitter Cell.

    I use it mostly for watching movies and anime I downloaded, AutoCAD, a little bit of photoshop, and surfing the net. :besides, I have little to no room for anything on my little desk. this damn CRT takes more than 75% of my desktop space :o the 15" LCD only took ~30% and the new monitor I ordered is said to take even less of that :eek: :)

    For some reason LCD's hurt my eyes too. I've found I have to sit way too close to them to see well, and I don't like that.
