Maybe it is time to get a new LCD, but i heard that it can be kind of hard to adjust to the LCD's monitors, and sometimes they are not even that great....I mean they small and stuff, but ya. But on the other hand I hadnt done absolutelly no research inside the monitor world, so there is lots of stuff i dont know..

Well, by this point, all the problems there used to be with LCDs have pretty much been taken care of or at least minimized. If you're getting a new monitor, there's no reason to get a CRT really.

Yeah, that's a decent price. I think the one you're thinking of is $150 on newegg, and when you consider shipping, it evens out.

There's a substantial difference in size between a 17" and a 19" monitor. I fact, I was blown away at first when I upgraded.

Also, assuming you're talking the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB, it's an awesome drive, I'd definitely recommend it.
