Using VGA? Maybe your cable is bad.

CRT images fade completely before the next is displayed. This means there's no ghosting at all but it also means flicker. Higher refresh rate means a smoother illusion of a continuos image. I think that logically an LCD should have a response time about half the frame time or...

Chances are Windows uses a faulty instruction that Linux doesn't somehow. Lock the core if it's a problem in Windows you can bet your ass it'll be a problem in some other software as well.

You'll probably not be able to output or input anything but standard HDTV resolutions. Which means 1080p60 max. If it's an LCD there's no physical way it actually runs at 480Hz anyway. Chances are it's for 24p and 25Hz and 29.whateverntscisweird to all run equally smooth along...

64-bit doesn't cut support for 32-bit apps, no? Before the Atom the only reason not to go 100% 64-bit was... nerd rage basically. In fact the Atom might have been 64-bit if MS had actually gone through with that and we wouldn't have had to deal with 32-bit at all.

I'd prefer a reasonable aspect ratio as well. 16:9 is enough gaming-through-a-slit as it is without tripling that.

One may use speed interchangeably with response time when talking about panels. Which is a component of a display not the whole display.

No I'm not. Input lag is how long it takes for the display to process the image [i]before[/i] displaying it and response time is how much time it takes to [i]actually display it.[/i] One is the electronics, the other is the panel itself, which is just the film with the pixels ...

I see ghosting on my 2ms TN. But it's not really an issue because it's so endlessly little. I must say 25ms doesn't seem like much, but it could be a problem actually. The fastest you can go on 60 fps is 16ms I think, so 25 represents a delay of almost two full frames. If you...
BmB Hardware & Software Reply
Panel response time is the time it takes for the image to change between frames. If this is too great the images will start to blur into each other, creating "ghosting" which was a massive problem especially when LCD was new. IPS is the worst at this and is still at a sort of ...
