I recently got a new monitor, and I was wondering if an LCD monitor was capable of severely decreasing my FPS in games like Medal of Honor Allied Assault. My FPS have gone from the upper 100's to now 10-20 frames. Just wondering, because this all started after i hooked up this new monitor. My old monitor was a huge dell CRT.


Thanks for any help.

lcd's has slower response time compared with crt's which makes it less ideal for gaming... they have ghosting effects and display corruption... but i heard that there are new models available with better response time and better resolution.. probably expensive though... if you want to know more... check ou this site...

Thanks for the info. My monitor has a 2000:1 contrast ratio and a 2ms response time. It's just that my fps have decreased so much that i think there is something wrong with my vid card maybe. I got an error while playing a game, my computer crashed and came up saying it got a "stop error" my onboard video got stuck in an infinite loop and had to shut down. I think my onboard video is going because of this new 1440x900 resolution. It seems like a video card problem. Wouldn't really be a problem if my x1300 pro didn't overheat on me :whistling:

what was the stop error... did you try hooking your old crt back to see wheter your fps would improve??? if its the same then its a video card problem... y did it over heat... did you check your heat sinks and fans?
