Depends on what size you want to get and what manufacture you want. I would go with LCD if you go above 19! The CRT 19 and above are heavy as hell!!!! My brother has one and it is nice but I have a flat panel that looks alot better. Anywho it is up to you. I would recommend look at the dell 24 inch widescreen, they cost 1,000.00 on there web site but cost 550.00 on ebay. I've see these lcd's and god they are dam nice!!!
