they would look like complete ass on my setup
Maybe the 1080P and 1440P would, but if you had the same sources hooked up that I'm using, you'll do very well at 1080P @ 60hz.
I've looked at your images very close. And being one that has made a hobby out of improving on the video chain, I had to first learn when a source was limited. And I can tell from your images that the NEC is very capable of more than what you're showing.
I am with Clarence, in that you do deserve the crown. because you've done a great thing there with a stock machine, and the setup was the best I've ever seen anyone post a screenshot of. I also do large screen presentation systems setups, and you've outdone me on that setup. And to pull it off with an NEC, is nothing short of remarkable.
The only short comings of CRT is the quality of the source material put on it's inputs. Most (if not all) of everything out there is not true HDTV at it's best for CRT. And the lastest and greatest processors are designed with emphasis on digital. So any analog out put would not have the benefit of being high end, because no ones using CRT projectors to evaluate the analog signal for the absolute best performance.
So we're stuck with super high performing display devices (CRT's) that are being limited from the quick use of a $0.15 analog DAC connection.
I dread the day that I have to finish tweaking that 8500..
