Default Re: 6800 Ultra and a good Monitor

As for as gameing I still like to use a CRT over a LCD simply for the reason you can set it to what ever resolution you want to play the game at and I still think if you have a Trinitron tube or one like that then they still have a great picture for gameing and the price of a good CRT is still cheaper than a price of a good LCD.

I prefer CRT's as well, but there is no doubting that LCD's are catching up to the CRT's response time quick. I played UT2004 on a 17" 12ms Samsung, and it was beautiful. I cannot stand ghosting however, and 25 ms LCD's are very ugly to me.

If you're willing to wait a while, I'm sure that the next generation of monitors called "OLED" will own both LCD and CRT, with a higher quality picture, very low response time (0ms is the official spec!) and low production costs.

I gave my wife the Samsung 192n and im using the Sony 21 flat tube and i play games at 20 15 which is the shiznit . Im happy with playing Far Cry and HL2 at 1600 1200 full spec which is beutiful.

I love the LCD it looks damn good but it has a 25ns responce time which was upsetting and i went to BestBuy and seen most of their 19 inch monitors had a 25ns timing as well so im probably going to wait a year or so for low resoponce tome LCD that are 19 or bigger.

LCDs are where it's @. CRT's have better blacks and -0- motion blur but that's it. And motion blur w/16ms or less displays is pretty minimal. You have to be ultra picky, no downright anal, IMO to freak out about what little motion blur you're going to see with the newer displays. Plus less power, less heat, more desk space, etc..

I've owned top of the line Sony CRT displays and IMO I would never go back after using panels.

At the best prices. This 8-Cube LCD I bought was $206 shipped from Newegg. 17-inch, 1280x1024, 12 ms response time. It's not quite as bright or crisp as some Samsung displays I've seen and used, but for the price I won't complain - no having to wait for rebates or anything.

If I had the extra cash, I would have bought the 19-inch Hyundai LCD with the 8 ms response time. It was only $360 shipped, which is an outstanding price.

If you really want to go high-end, snag a Dell 2001 or 2005FPW. Nothing beats those for 1600 gaming.
