    Monitor (question for nerds only)

    Is there a noticeable difference (performance-wise) between CRTs and LCD monitors? I've heard that most basic LCD monitors have refresh rates at 60hz,75hz, or 85hz max. But CRTs can go over 120 hz. Right now I'm using a normal LCD monitor with 1600 x 1200 resolution and @ 75 hz but when I play on my friends computer with his CRT monitor, his UT is more than 5x smoother and way easier to aim than mine even though my PC and graphic card are over 3x better than his. Is there something I'm doing wrong or are CRTs just generally better than basic LCDs for gaming?

    Problem with LCD monitors is that LCD is designed for a native resolution. If you change the resolution on an LCD screen, the image will be scaled and the quality won’t be as good as with the native resolution.

    When it comes to FPS, CRT is much better than LCD. LCD is junk and the responsiveness is slow. Even at 2ms, an LCD does comes nowhere near a CRT and has too much latency. If you go from CRT to LCD or LCD to CRT you will see what I mean.

    Oh and CRTs last way longer than LCD. btw, aren't LCD old fashioned now though? Don't most people have LED now?

    btw I'm not a nerd. Nerd

    Possibly. That's why I've noticed playing on CRTs @ at even 75 hz looks and feels much better than a LCD and the mouse response is much faster. Only thing is a CRT monitor does not suit my desktop at all and it's too heavy. A good pc, keyboard, mouse, and a CRT monitor lol worst combination. What about gaming LCDs with 120 hz is that as good or better than CRTs?

    In a nutshell, LCD will never be as good as a CRT, period.

    This is the face of Blaze during our scrim. Unrealshots and SW did a good job to keep a smile on Blaze's face because if they had not done a good job well it'll make me sad seeing a pic like that without a smile. When Blaze's happy we all are. Remember a smile like that only comes once in a life time and you have to embrace it. pzz out

    If you care that much get a 120hz monitor. Heard good things about them from other UT players.

    LCDs with 120hz are kinda expensive but I'm still thinking of buying one.

    You probably have different Display adapters in each computer? Refresh rate and screen resolution have a tremendous impact on performance... but these settings are configured IN THE GAME but can be impacted( or restricted) by windows settings. Check the manual, read the book, and watch the video. *wink

    Manual (for the monitor), BOOK (for the Tweaking your video card) and VIDEO for checking the performance.
