I was wondering which is better right now? Everyone around me seems to be going LCD, and I'm stuck with my big old CRT hawking my desk space....

The issue I have with LCD, is native resolution. Is this still a big issue? In games, if I choose to go to 1600x1200 on a LCD with 1280x1024 native res, will it hamper visual appearance by much?

you can only go lower with lcd... it is not possible to go higher with the resolution e.g. 1280x1024 native = max...

there's a good article on the frontpage with the newer big lcd 20 inch screens which also seem to give good picture quality on lower resolutions.

the rule though is: native res = best picture for the lcd screen

hope that helps u decide what to buy
