View Full Version : monitor ?

01-15-05, 02:42 PM
Hi all..I have a nice gaming rig but I am still using my 1997 gateway vx900 19 " monitor. How much would I benefit from purchasing a new display? My thinking is
1997 monitors were built for the machines of that day.

I think I will go with a 21" crt but I am curious about the visual gain or improvement?

just did a quick search:

1024x768 a 85hz
1280x1024 a 85hz
1600x1024 a 85hz
1600x1200 a 75hz

if i had that monitor i wouldnt replace it till it died.

thanks...that was always my theory on it but lately I have upgraded everything over the years as pc games have progressed. However the same display has been on the desk since day one.

Starting wondering about monitor and what could be improved if anything.
