Opinions on the best lcd monitors

three thing I know I want

19"
LCD
and I want to use the digital out on my new saphire 800 pro vidio card by ATI.

If I could find one with a wide screen aspect ratio for around a 1000 that would tickle me pink. but I may have to go a little bigger for that.

Thanks for any opinions you gamers might have on the subject.

Tim, check this link. It may have the specs you're looking for. If you have any questions, just ask.

After doing some reading it looks like a larger CRT display is better for high end graphics and faster pixle responce times for moving images. I would not have known this if i didn't read the articles. and CRT's are cheaper.

Of course CRT's are cheaper. However, flat panels provide so much more viewable surface and will not suffer from "screen burn" and/or EMI distortion.

Not to mention they don't use as much energy, put off as much heat, or take up nearly as much space.

I play games on the monitor I'm using right now. It's a fairly old IBM flat panel 20" and I play games on it all the time, including the games with the ATI Graphics card. It is just as good if not better than the old Dell CRT I used to use.

the best LCD is NO LCD


CRTs are better, IMHO, unless you don't game, then you don't need the quality

But obviously you do, So get a CRT with a DVI imput. Surplus COmputers has refurbished 21inch Sony Trinitrons onsale now for only 120 bucks.
