I ordered parts for my new system over the weekend but I still need to get me a monitor. Primarily using this system for gaming. I want a 17" or 19" flat screen CRT monitor (black color) in the $150-$250 + shipping range.

my system consists of:

Koolance PC2-650bk with vga/cpu coolers
Asus A8V Deluxe mobo
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ cpu
Visiontek X800 Pro 256mb
Truecontrol 550w power
Western Digital 160gb hd
lite on CDRW/DVD COMBO52X32X52X16
DVD+/-RW LITEON SOHW-832S BLK
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS gamer

Any monitor reccomendations please?

Welcome to the forums, judging from your system looks like you've done your research very well, great setup! Here would be my choices...

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-232&depa=0
CRT Type: PerfectFlat CRT
Dot Pitch: 0.25mm aperture grille at center
Max / Optimal resolution: 2048x1536 @ 68Hz / 1600x1200 @ 87Hz
Frequency / Bandwidth: fh: 30~110kHz; fv: 50~160Hz / 285MHz

Those are some 19" suggestions....I'm very partial to viewsonic because I believe they make excellent products. The P series is higher end and has higher refresh rates, which could come in handy if you run games at 1600x1200.
