        you cant SS ghosting since the issue is in the screen and not in the way the video card renders the image.

        Move the cursor/ a window fast left and right. If you see a blur behind it, that's ghosting.

          heh I guarantee you've seen it.

          Only happens when the display is moving fast, usually.

              weird, i just first person view spec'd a match of XxxX instagib (really fast) and i saw no ghosting at all. i don't understand because the monitor was made in january of 2002 and has a response time of 35 ms

              i watched people flying around in circles really fast and i saw no blurring but i should be because of my response time....

              anyone know what's going on?

              here's my monitor: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Dell_Del...r_Manufacturer

                The best way to notice ghosting, is to set your lcd and crt side by side, put them into clone mode so they both display the same info, then fire up a game and go into a map and spin your mouse fast like you would to do quick 180's. My LCD is rated at 16ms, and in UT I do see VERY SLIGHT ghosting in UT and I did not notice it until I viewed it side by side with my crt. It is more evident when doing things like the following. Take a irc box with a white background with black text and grab onto it with your mouse, and drag it around the screen fast. With my crt the text maintains its integrity while the LCD does get a fair chunk of trail to it while in motion.

                But with that being said, as I stated in another LCD post, the only reason I even bought a LCD was to make a big screen projector out of it as crts can't be use for a DIY projector. And I wanted the ability to play my games and movies etc on a 120" screen. And all said and done I spent $750 canadian for a 120" tv/pc monitor that looks **** amazing so I can't complain about that. And its a hoot to take to LAN parties

                  I once had a 16ms LCD for a while (17" Sony with XBlack tech) and if you game regularly, you immediatly notice it. In instagib anyways.

                    People that say this have never played on a good LCD. Viewsonic VP201B, 20.1", 1600x1200 native resolution.
                    Dead pixels=0
                    Ghosting=0
                    Tearing=0
                    Have it sitting right beside a Sony 21" CRT and it makes it look sick in every way.

                        I wouldnt trade you for 10 of those oversized, overweight space heaters known as CRT's. Worth every penny.:up:

                          Thanks to all those people 'upgrading' to superexpensive LCD desk ornaments I was able to get me a used 21" Trinitron for a hundred bucks. LCDs are great!
