- CRTs can achieve much higher refresh rates at higher resolutions. I can run 1920x1440 @ 85Hz on my 22" CRT, don't tell me you LCD can do that.
- Like it or not, LCDs do still have a response time, however small it may be, CRTs do not suffer from this drawback.
- I am not limited to my native res, I can comfortably run 1600x1200 or 1920x1440, and not have a skewed image.
- CRTs have a much better contrast ratio, as well as colour depth and richness.

Of course, I'm talking about a decent CRT, not some POS made in 1993.

since it seems like you will be playing at a lower res, then choose the 9800GT to save money, you probably wont get that much of a performance increase with the GTX unless you are going to get an higher res monitor which i think its like 20"+?

CRTs still suffer from uneven brightness....that's the only con I can think of....oh....and their massive size. :P
