My current monitor is a 19" Viewsonic CRT that I've had for 2 years now. It worked fine up until a few months ago when the screen would just fade and get really dark for hours at a time. I have to strain my eyes just to read a line of text when this happens. Does anyone know what the problem is? So right now I'm looking around for a new monitor, an LCD that's at least 17". Anything from around 300-400 dollars.. Just something that will let me watch movies and play a couple games. Any help would be much appreciated.
