I know this has probably been posted a million times, but I have been trouble deciding and I wanted some up-to-date information from you guys.

I am putting together a system and want to go with a 19in CRT geared towards gaming. I don't think I want to spend anything more than $300 unless $15 or so more will get me something significantly better.

I would preferably like the monitor to be black, but I guess it's not completely necessary.

Here are a few I have been looking at:

NEC MultiSync FP912SB
ViewSonic P95F+B 19"
SAMSUNG 957MB-Ivory 19"

I would appreciate your recommendations.

Thanks in advance guys.

i got a NEC 991 SB. when i was looking for a new monitor, my budget was arond 200 so i didnt' really look at the models you suggested. anyway, i did about 3 weeks of research and decided that this monitor was the best. i was able to score a great deal from dell for $190 shipped. anyway i LOVE this monitor. it's flat, sharp, colors are correct, superbright is nice etc...

Try to find Dell Triitron 19 inch display. It simply one of the best 19" CRT. I had it for almost 5 year, love it everyday. My other 19" Hitachi CM772 is so so, the pic is not perfectly flat, you can notice little s-curve on both edges


All that is Man!
