    the higher the resolution, the lower the max refresh rate...sure my old 17" crt can have a 1280*1024 res (with a 8-year old nvidia tnt2 pro), but then I don't have a 100Hz refresh rate..

    anyways, what about the response time of laptop screens?

      i agree... i love my flat viewsonic 19"..i have had bigger and smaller..19 seems to be perfect for gaming...for me..i used to be a diehard CRT fan, but have been really happy with my LCD..


        Another vote for the Samsung 226bw from me. Had mine for a couple of months now and would not go back to my old lcd or a crt if you paid me.

        Ps. Its an 'A' panel and after much less than five minutes in the calibration tool it looked perfect, so don't belive all the FUD saying only go for the S panel version.
