LCD Monitor for gaming ?

Two questions:

I just bought an LG 19" LCD Monitor. Model L1952TX. 8 MS response time and 1600:1 contrast.

I am extremely impressed with the visual quality vs my old CRT monitor... however, in most of the games I have played with it, I notice a slight blurr when the games are in high movement (fast paced). The salesman said it was good for gaming, but why am I seeing a slight blurr when the action gets heavy? My old CRT never did this. Is it because the response time is too slow ?

Also, one other quick question. I bought the DVI (digital) cable for this monitor. I haven't noticed a difference between this digital connection and the analogue. Do I really need the digital connection?

Thanks for any comments.

Hi. Do you know what your refresh rates are set to? Let us know if you don't, and we'll help you. Also, the connection is your choice. Whatever you prefer. I'm not positive on what the difference would be on a monitor with Digital vs. Analog ...

The screen refresh rate is set to 60 Hertz, resolution is 1280X1024. Does that sound normal?

It appears as though I can't turn up the refresh rate at this resolution.

Well most LCD's I've seen won't go beyond 60hertz. also lcd's have a native resolution that you should set them to and leave them at. It SHOULD tell you in the documentation what the native is but you may have to try the companies website to see if they have it listed there.

I'm not a big gamer and I dont' use LCD but most gamers say they are not good, but then again they have made improvements... I believe your problem could be related to response times as I've heard that stated in the past as a problem for gaming with lcd's.
