Well I've been always preferring CRT for gaming. See, while LCD is easy to the eyes for working (like my laptop), I don't like it too much for gaming because IMO it is too dim, and the color doesn't seem to be as rich as CRT.

However, I've just purchased a Voodoo5 Mac (DVI connector) on ebay, so lately I became more interested to switch to LCD.

So what would you suggest? Do you prefer LCD or CRT for gaming? Should I switch to LCD, or stay with CRT?

I also play a lot of old GLide games like EF2000 V2.0 or Longbow 2, which resolution is limited to 640x480. On large CRT monitors (21" and such), the pixels are blatantly visible when using such low resolution. Thus I'm more interested to move to LCD, because when using low-res in LCD, the pixels are more subtle (although the image is blurrier). However, I haven't quite followed LCD technologies lately. Do new LCD monitors support low-res well?

Same here, i just don't like TFT interpolation, and there is no way to run newer games at 1280x1024 or 1600x1200 on a Voodoo5 class card. So, i still use a 19" CRT and sometimes my 21" Trinitron with the 6000. No TFT for my systems...

CRT all the way. why not just get a CRT that has a digital input, if you are so gung ho about the digital signal? with LCD you are stuck with whatever res the monitor is best at. all other resolutions ar "interpolated" i.e. pixelated all to hell.
