Default Re: CRT or LCD for gaming

I have the exact same set up, 15 lcd and 19 crt, it looks really wierd. I use my crt for gaming since it's bigger and faster. But the lcd does look better and i dont see any ghosting or anything. So depends w/e you like more...colour, or size...

Yeah, the crt would be better. 19" is a good size to do anything. I have a 17" lcd and also a 17" crt and I use both. The crt is faster to respond but the lcd displays text and other things better.

I just ordered a 17" LCD for my gaming rig. I made sure to read up on how they are for gaming first, though, and I learned a lot. One thing is the response time. Anything over 25ms (or 20 as some said) will cause noticeable ghosting. Most suggest a response time of 17ms or slower. I went with a 12ms response time. The great thing was is that it was only 1 dollar more than the 25ms I was first gonna get (after $20 mail-in rebate).

CRT is better than LCD, even though some are getting pretty fast (I heard that there's one that has 6ms response time). THe plus side of a LCD is the size, but if you have room, get CRT.

5ms response time. Little Exspensive. But looks to be worth it.
