    ^^: 74n if you want an LCD, but as you have mentioned gaming, i am not sure 8ms (reponse time of that monitor) is good enough, so you may think of getting a 19" CRT

    if you are an hardcore gamer get a 19in crt, or a samsung 740n will do quite well.

    I agree, for gaming and any fast graphic moving images CRT wins over LCD. Check out my post in the below thread link for why CRT is better than LCD

    okay guys, tomorrows the day i buy, so any quick suggestions would be helpful....also, i heard there are monitors which strain the eyes, so are there any which don't...?
    @drvarunmehta: from the thread in the reviews section by mav3, it doesn't seem as if the 740n is a very good monitor.....
    @jz2linkinpark@yes, some names would be helpful
    also, what is the cheapest 19" lcd and a similar priced 19" CRT? thank you
    __________
    i have decided to increase my budget to a few more k and i am eyeing these two models:ViewSonic VA1912wb 19" LCD Monitor and samsung 740bw....how much do they cost? is there any less costly 19" lcd?(iwdescreen would be nice)
