Default Mon. or Comp.?

I was wondering if it is the monitor or the computer that effects how fast a game is. Because my monitor is quite old but my computer is brand new. but i just playing internet games and it is not quite as fast as my sisters laptop or computer. and my specs are a little better than theres. The have LCD monitors and have a CRt. So if i purchased a new LCD with a quicker response time. would that help?

Stfu Bluto You F*ing Asshole. Ignore Him Katie, You Will Soon Learn Bluto Is Rude And Unimformative. A New Monitor Won't Make Your Games Run Faster, But They Will Look Better. For Gaming Go With A Crt.

Your monitor has nothing to do with the speed of the game.

Graphics card, processor & memory are the main factors. its just a matter of getting a balance of the three.

Does it say that they live seperately, they are sisters after all.

Could be using the same connection.
