    upgrading

    im upgrading my currents system, i have £200 to do it, now i have a 8 yr old CRT 18 inch monitor, im wondering is it worth gting a tft for gaming? will this be good for gaming... or would it be good to get a new graphics card ( bfg 7900 gt 256 mb ) , more ram, new crt etc im just wanting to upgrade for better gaming experience... personally i think my old crt is letting me down and that a new tft or crt would make it better... wats ur guys opinion ?

    i would say your gfx card is pretty good right now i wont say get a 7900gt though, since alot of them have and are artifacting which is not good. so i would say get a new tft if you can stretch for £250 i recomend the NEC gx902 i have one and it really is good for gaming. it can be had for £250 inc vat and delivery

    it uses a glossy panel technology like sony x-black and i think it makes the picture come to life
