Ha ha!, all due respects to your dad, I dunno how old he is, but we all age differently, you know my age, & apart from some medical problems & lack of proper sleep, mentally I feel 30 years younger!!

Yeah, I've heard a lot of good things about Acer LCDs. I want to get 3 for a 3 monitor setup like I have with my CRTs right now, so hopefully those will still be available by the time I have my new system and have $600ish saved up for the 3 LCDs... It will be a nice and long montior setup with 3 widescreen monitors though so it will be nice.

Until LCDs can beat the colors and contrast ratio of this CRT in front of me, I shall not switch.

Though I will say that LCDs are very sharp. Easy on the eyes, too.

Bad news for you then, CRT's are no longer made, it's TFT or nothing next time, I'm afraid Mike!

Thats not a problem. LCDs are getting better and will soon be better.

CRTs are all over the place anyway. Pawn shops have loads of 'em here.

I also resell a lot of P3 and Celeron systems for people that need a PC and don't have a lot of money for a new one. If all they need it for is internet (as what most people use it for) they don't need anything amazing.

That being said, I will upgrade my P4 within the next few months hopefully, though it's not a largely needed upgrade, I'm big on having more power, so it will justify the cost. Just need to sell all my PCs in stock at the moment to buy it though...

As for the monitor subject, I want an Acer 19" widescreen, but am still debating on the Acer or another brand. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009091
Yeah, there's no point in getting an extremely powerful computer if all you're going to be running are Internet Explorer / Firefox and office applications.

Back to the monitor subject; it's kind of off-topic, but never get a Neovo. EVER.
