In the future, I would suggest removing the pics so that your post isn't so big from the pics. I tend to usually remove the pic and put:

**Picture removed for quote purposes**

Then, your post is much smaller and more manageable

yup i totally know what you mean. Luckly for me my windows faces the north so i don't get direct light, but on those nice sunny days, the light does get irritating.

Awesome, except you accidentally deleted the quote closing code. Just type:

[/QUOTE]

(in caps) At the end of the quote.

EDIT: Sweet.

With CRTs i've found that 85hz is absolutely necessary. 60hz BURNS THE EYES.

60hz on an LCD is fine since it doesn't strain the eyes.

With my CRT, I could leave Vsync off and I'd barely notice the tearing, so I didn't mind. On this LCD, the tearing is so bad. But I can't turn on vsync.. if I do, I get delayed mouse movement. Kinda ruins shooters.

My old 19" CRT was nice, the colors (dark colors I mean) were so much better than what this LCD can do.. I guess thats the nature of the beast.. friggen back light.

Another thing I loved about CRTs was being able to run a game at 1024x768 with no problems.. on a LCD thats gonna look terrible.. though I've found my LCD scales to those lower resolutions pretty well.

Well yea, if you have a video card that isn't beefy enough to handle vsync or high resolutions, then a CRT isn't a bad option. In your case, I would think you would be fine running at an LCD's native res.

lol, and yes 60Hz on a CRT will BURN YOUR EYES

Yeah most games run perfectly fine at 1680x1050.

Playing quake 4, thief, thief II... games in general with a lot of dark to them.. just terrible on this lcd..
