CRT's are better for gaming, the image is brighter and clearer. LCD's tend to be a little darker than CRT's. Although, they have lcd's now that have a 3ms response time that would be good for gaming, but I don't think as good as a crt.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'

yep crt is better for gaming. But if u got some money to waste then go for a big, good quality lcd. U don't want to be carrying a 21" crt to lan parties.
Well sometimes I just take a 17", but it kinda sucks looking at a 15" when u are used to the 21".

the lcd's have improved alot, and though no lcd is as good in gaming as a crt, the difference is quite small.
But if u got the space on ur desk and don't move the monitor alot then a crt is fine.
