omg, is the difference that large, i'm glad i have a tft, before i had a very cheap 17"crt, it lasted for 4 years but the last months it got fuzzy

are those resolutions the same?

and dvi or analog on the tft?

got an 'old' 15" TFT here. one of the first models (belinea 10 15 20) with DFP, DVI avant la lettre. it cost 40.000BEF back in the days using it with a DFP => DVI adapter

it owns our samsung 17"TFT ... not only it's much sharper, the colors are better too

I once put the 17"TFT next to the 15", and got stunned how great the 15"TFT still was

Alright I'm still using a CRT 19"
What is a good tft for me and my low budget ?

But, isnt a tft good for surfing and a crt is good for gaming?

Huge difference, indeed. Just bought myself a second monitor, a 15inch crt.
Everything is low budget here, but I'm still verry happy with my main-monitor, a 17inch crt from phillips which costed about 500EUR a couple of years ago. I'm always working @1024*768@100hz which isn't bad imo.

@Jmke are you using winXP?
If you are, have you enabled the special feature for tft's?
Display properties=>Appearance=>Effects
Then check: "Use the following method to smooth edges..."
and select cleartype

You'll get a sharper picture
