Default Well guys....

I won't be on for a few days or may be over at a friends house to come on here. My IBM 19" Flat CRT decided to take a crap on me today around 11am. So I will be going monitor shopping and will most likely buy the Viewsonic 17" that CompUSA has on sale. It'* a flat CRT so I'm happy, I'm not a big fan of LCD'* unless it is a good 4ms response.

Yeah, I just want to get rid of it

Actually, it'd probably be cheaper, since he lives relatively close to me

Is it newer? I just happened to be able to borrow a monitor from a friend, but is extremely blurry! I might have to pass on it since my dad is going to get me one on wednesday.
