I have a samsung syncmaster 753df CRT monitor. I spend a lot of time on the computer for both work and entertainment and I find that I start to really squint and focusing becomes hard after a while. I've heard that LCD monitors are a lot easier on the eyes so I'm considering one. I really notice the ghosting effect on certain screens when I watch movies. I play games a lot so if I get an lcd it would have to have a decent response time. Does anyone have any suggestions, keeping in mind that I am very much on a budget? Any hints as to brands to consider/avoid? What are the most important numbers to look at (ie contrast ratio, response time, brightness). Also if someone could explain the native resolution to me, I would be very greatful!
