    Yes, u should... It reduces eye strain significantly..

    Tho u should go for monitors with least response time, since u wanna play games.

    Traditionally people were not very eager to go towards LCD as the response times lead to ghosting and other issues. I believe this has been resolved now with the new LCD monitors, try to go in for a LCD TV which is HD Complaint...this will allow you to play games in amazing resolution (with the correct card)

    And in this segment Size Does Matter :devil2:

    Enjoy...

    The eye strain reduction mechanisms depicted in the article is already being implemented by majority of the users.

    I read that comment mentioned. Frankly i think this is a relative factor which is dependent upon the eyes of the beholder. Some may find LCD better than CRT and vice versa.

    exactly ... depends from person to person ... i used to use a anti glare screen with my crt monitor earlier ... but it wasnt of any good ... only the colour and picture quality gets disturbed by them
