Thanks guys!

Haha Yes it's a CRT. It's a flat tube CRT which can do 800x600 at 120Hz and 1600x1200 at 72Hz. I have yet to find an LCD which can compair in picture quality and speed at such a wide range of resolutions. Happy

Interesting. I've also got an old crt, a ViewSonic 17", which does perfectly adequately for most applications. Instead of upgrading to a new monitor, last fall I invested in a 3D headset from these guys http://www.vrealities.com/ ; the model seems to have been superceded, but is as far as I can see almost identical to this one http://www.vrealities.com/virtualvisor.html , though mine was called "V-Real". It came with "earbuds", and their new model has built in headphones of some sort. I use neither, as I have a good set of Koss headphones with a built in mike, so the earlier version is actually better for me. Anyway, there is a lot to say about the headset, both pro and con, but as it turns out the last six months have been very busy for me, I don't feel I'm yet able to give a fully detailed assessment of the rig as I haven't been able to use it enough. I can say a few things, though, and I'll start a new thread to describe my experiences with it - I've been meaning to do that for a while, and I just needed something to instigate it.
