Here is some info on how I use my computer: I am a gamer, and this is the primary use of my system. I have always had a 19" monitor and have no desire to get anything smaller than that. My existing monitor was always a 'dark monitor' in that I had to have the contrast/brightness at 100% to get a decent screen (and even then it was a little too dark for my liking), and I want to avoid this at all costs as I prepare to purchase a new monitor.
As I prepare to purchase a new monitor, I am immediately forced to examine the differences between LCD and CRT monitors. Many individuals keep telling me that CRT monitors are the best for gaming, and that this is what I should purchase. Is this true? I do not necessarily need a flat screen, and do not want to purchase it just because it is a LCD screen... ecspecially if a CRT screen is going to be a better performing monitor for my gaming. While I am fine with a CRT monitor, assuming they are better for gaming, my only concern is the brightness. Is there a way to avoid purchasing another 'dark monitor'?
Long story short... what type/brand of monitor would you reccomend based on my needs?
Thanks in advance for the help,
