I just bought a geforece 7800 gt but I have about a 5yr old monitor its a NEC multisync 95, I cant find any review or specs on the net about it, but its about a dot pitch .28 I think, based on ebay and a user who is selling it off for 10 bux lol.
Now should I get a new monitor to take advantage of my new card? Im playing grahpic intensive games and if so which monitor should I get. It goes up to 120 refresh rate and goes up to 2048 x 1048.
I know CRT are better for gaming than LCD and the LCD for gaming are very expensive.
So which CRT can I get which is fairly cheap 100-150 bux and is good quality.
your refresh rate + res setting sound fine especially since you play at 1024x768 most likely... (17"). It doesn't sound like you need to upgrade, a new monitor won't take better advantage of your card. You might get some better color quality and less glare and a "flatter" pic (if you buy a PerfectFlat CRT) but umm, no, you don't need to upgrade...
If your monitor is a noticeable problem and you want a new one, try a 19" Viewsonic G90fb... you should probably get a 19" if your upgrading, stupid not to IMO... it's $250 after shipping...
But again, that said, it doesn't like you really have any need for a new monitor. If you really do need an upgrade and are on a very tight budget, the viewsonic E70F series (E70FB for black) is a good choice for a 17" monitor. Make sure you get the "F" (NOT the plain E70), because the "F" signifies the PerfectFlat CRT screen. Yes, you want that.
