I think if technology hadnt advanced so much for LCDs i would probably be using a CRT cause of course we all know they used to be much better for gaming. But now there's LCD with 8, 6 and i think even 4ms so LCD is the way to go IMO.

LCD are just as capable as CRT. They match their performance very well and no where to go but up. Gets better and better every year and will come to the point where we say "what's CRT?"

I have a 19" CRT because LCD's are EXPENSIVE on a students wage (AKA nothing)
