Also New Monitor!

I am also getting a new monitor. I am wanting a 21" CRT Flat Screen monitor. I have been looking for the best one for gaming. The one I like the most so far is this one:

If you all know any other monitors that are really good for gaming let me know. Also, I don't know what specs to look at for monitors for gaming and what is good and bad. I need help. Thanks.

Re: Also New Monitor!

6 months ago I bought a 19" crt. It's a viewsonic p95f+ (mine is black, but they have other colors).

I did alot of research for a "gaming" monitor and this one does not disappoint. It was top, or tied, in every round up review I could find. The reason it's so good is the color quality. I have never seen a more vibrant, more colorful monitor. I take it to lan's frequently and have yet to see one with a better quality picture. I have had numerous people stop and mention it at these events.
There is also a button on the front for "on the fly" gamma adjustments. One for gaming, one for text, one for dvd and it is freaking awesome.

Downsides, it's big and heavy. I also had an issue with it about 5 months in. Granted we were hit with a heavy lightning storm. I turned off my pc and the storm seemed to have passed. The next day I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't do anything. By the warranty that would probably be my fault but I wasn't going to tell them.
They paid for my rma, they get 2 weeks to fix yours or they will send you a replacement. They sent me a replacement (mine must have really been fried). So anyways all this isn't a downside but I am getting to that. The replacement had a small scratch on it and something was rattling inside. I called them right back and had them send another one all at their expense. While the inconvenience of the second monitor was aggravating I was absolutely amazed at the level of customer support. They were in constant e-mai contact, answered all my questiosn and made sure I was happy with my monitor.

Maybe they have a 21" version you could look into. Regardless this monitor is incredible for gaming.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I will look your monitor up and see if the stats on the monitor I want and the stats on yours are similar. If so, they should be the same quality considering they are both made by ViewSonic.

Or would this 19" LCD Screen be better:

I don't know how LCD's are for gaming though.
