Default Just bought a new 24" LCD.

Upgraded from my 22" CRT (Dell P1230) to a Dell True Colour E248WFP. 1920x1200, not that 1920x1080 crap, 5ms response time etc etc.

All I can say is CRT rules, the difference in image quality is very noticeable, mostly the contrast and general vivacity of the colour, the LCD appears "washed out".

I even have to use AA in everything now as jagged edges are much more visible due to the lower amount of pixels per sq. "

But I thought VGA was the best and nothing could match it? DVI FTL.

DVI > VGA on LCD monitors.

Don't take offense. I wasn't asking for help anyway, just trying to start a debate.
