I'm looking at getting a 21" Sony crt monitor since they are dirt cheap right now.
Just curious, does the type of monitor, lcd, crt etc effect gaming at all?

We used to hunt and fish to survive. Now we have to work 50 wks. a year so we can take a couple of weeks off to hunt and fish

Kinda...

If you get a "too cheap" LCD, you can get ghosting if the pixel refresh is too slow.

However, it won't affect frame rates, etc...1024x768 will be as fast on a CRT as it will on an LCD, that's just driven by your video card (and processor).
