I'm running a P4 with a 6800GT and I want to upgrade my monitor. Is this a good monitor for gaming? Thanks.

I'd say it looks good since it is capable of 1600x1200 at 85 Hz. That's the resolution/refresh rate I would recommend for a monitor that size for anything you do from desktop work to gaming.

I tend to stick with AG monitors for gaming. Here is a comparison between that Viewsonic and a Cornerstone p1750> http://compare.monitorsdirect.com/shopping_tools/cmpmonitor.jsp?sku1=369144&sku2=847771

Focus on the Horizontal scanning frequency, Convergence and warranty. More expensive I know, but in the end you get what you pay for. I paid almost $1k for my 22" iiyama almost 5 years ago and I still think it was worth it....1600x1200 @ 100hz. I also have a 19" Cornerstone p2460; it's optimised for 16x12 @ 85hz.......

anyway, JMO (pimp)

There are two types of CRT technology: Shadow Mask and Aperture Grille. Shadow Mask CRTs are better suited to text based applications, where Aperture Grille is ideal for graphics applications. Both technologies have conventional and flat option. Conventional CRTs typically produce the best image quality, while Flat CRTs are ideal for managing reflection issues.
