I would use LCD. The modern LCDs are pretty good for gaming, they have fast response times now, the last samsung LCD i bought had a 2ms response time, i'm not a gaming enthusiast, but I would think that 2ms response time will be decent enough. with the response time issue out of the way, I think LCDs beats CRT in a lot more other aspects, like duty life, aesthetics, space foot print, clarity, sharpness etc. Thanks, happy lottin.

I prefer to LCD monitor. It's not thrue that LCD monitor isn't good for gaming application. I use LCD monitor to play my games too. LCD monitor has a lower radiation than CRT monitor. It make your eyes more comfort when we are in front of our computer a whole day. And of course, LCD monitor consume power less than CRT monitor.
