Need help with my fist new monitor purchase

Hi guys, I have a problem and i was hoping you guys could give me some ideas here. Anyway, ive had my 19" Dell monitor for 6 years now and its done me just fine. Its the only thing that has been part of my setup over the years that doesnt get an annual upgrade. Games still look great on it and it doesnt hurt my eyes with 1152x864 which im currently on with 85hrz...

anyway, I think its time for a new monitor though. Ive read the debates over the years about CRT being better then LCD for gaming unless i have been misinformed. An LCD would look very nice, but I was looking at getting around a 20"-22" monitor and cant really afford a big lcd like that one. However a nce viewsonic or something else in a larger CRT would be great. Like I said, my 19" has done me just fine, but I would certainly like to play some new games on a much bigger screen, or at least noticeably bigger...any ideas guys? Thanks

Fisting problems go in Mature Forum-->

As for your monitor, I'd suggest right now the Dell 2001fp for $599 from (dell small business). 20.1", 16ms response time.
