hi all - i did a search, but didn't find any answers. i'm thinking about getting a new pc soon. part of my decisions will be whether to get a crt or a flat-panel. some factors: 1. i'm not a hard-core gamer...but with a hi-speed pc, that could change. my fear is that the flat-panel won't perform well for this task. 2. do i require any special hardware of software when using a flat-panel? 3. my desk has a frosted-glass surface, so i'm afraid of putting a really heavy 19 or 21 inch crt on top. i visited a friend last night. she had a 17" viewsonic flatscreen and i thought the picture looked really nice. i don't know a lot about this stuff, so any advice is appreciated! thanks!
