    Question Mark

    i got a real dilemma here: i have to choose between a new graphics card (7950/x1950) or a 19" LCD monitor
    What shud I do??

    my actual card is a 7600Gt and my monitor is a random CRT 17"

    /if you choose "save money" please explain why

    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

    I'd probbly go with the monitor, get rid of that CRT! The 7600GT is a pretty decent card that should hold you for awhile.

    I agree, go for the monitor, preferably one of those 2ms refresh rate jobs.

    By the time you actually NEED to upgrade your graphics card there will probably be a new generation around, but prices for a 19" monitor are unlikely to drop much in the intervening period.

    Also, because of the high internal voltages your CRT monitor is more likely to fail than a new LCD one or your current graphics card, and you should always replace the "weakest" component first.
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    The drug dealer probably can get you both for the same price?
