Youve just built the system of your dreams and finally when its
all together you try to hook up that old 17 inch CRT monitor and realize that
the connector from your monitor doesnt match the one on that new video
card. Then you remember, in your excitement, you forgot to buy that new widescreen
22 inch monitor you had looked at. Todays trends have basically rendered
CRT monitors extinct and more people are leaning towards Liquid Crystal Display
Monitors (LCD), due to their sharper picture quality, their widescreen capabilities,
and since they dont consume as much space on one's desk. When CRTs were
most popular, prices on the larger screen monitors were often out of reach for
the average consumer. However, with LCDs, prices are more reasonable and for
one week's salary, most people can purchase a quality wide screen LCD monitor
for much less than a comparable CRT monitor would cost (NEC 21in CRT $349.99
Res. 1280x1024 Analog vs. BenQ 22in LCD $269.99 Res. 1680x1050 Digital). Most
of the LCD monitors you can choose from are also HDTV (DVI and HDMI) ready,
whereas a CRT is not.
