It seems that my monitor has given up on me after less than five years. How long should a CRT last? I'm assuming that it's not worth getting it fixed.
Anyway, it seems that I'm now on the market for a replacement.
I'm not sure whether to get another CRT or a TFT. My main concern is how TFTs perform for gaming. I'm not into First-Person Shooters and mainly play RTS titles. However, I'm not sure how a TFT will perform if the game can't manage the native resolution of the TFT. For example if the native resolution of the TFT is 1280x1024, what if the game's settings only allow up to 1024x768 or even 800x600?
I'm not after anything large as I'm happy with a 17 inch.
