I am in the same situation you are and the onyl decent lcds I have found for that price is 15"(europe sucks for electronics).Brian Haworth said:I'm looking to upgrade my aging 17" CRT to a 17" LCD, and I want to spend $250 or less. What's the best flat panel display I can get for that value?
CRTs arent all that bad, I actually like them because they are brighter, I had the same graphics card you did uptill 2 months ago. The 7500 is really aging. I recomend you buy a graphics card, with $250 you could get a really good card like the ati radeon 9800 or 9600pro and you still have money left over. I say go for the graphics card!Brian Haworth said:Hmm. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure I need an LCD, but I recently came into a small amount of cash, and my father thinks I should get an LCD 'cause they're nice and would give me a lot more desk space.
For a while I had two CRTs connected to my computer, but one died... should I replace it and maybe get a second video card so my VRAM won't be split? I currently have an AGP Radeon 7500.
I don't really know. I guess I'm just asking for ideas.
