I hope that the release of CS:CZ may inspire ATI to fix the driver issues with the HL engine though....b/c right now it's as if they simply don't care.
No, seriously. How can a video card driver kill a CRT? They must've been very poorly made CRT's if a bad signal could KILL them. Can we say no protection or failsafes in the monitor? That's just sad. My 17" OEM Sony CRT with BUILT IN SPEAKERS has lasted me SEVEN YEARS now, and I betcha if I got one of those driver sets famous for breaking monitors, I'd still have no problems. Why? Because my CRT isn't poorly built. This is one solid monitor. It's 17" and matches the spec of most off-the-shelf, decently priced 17" CRT's today (60Hz 1280x1024 realistic maximum - yes, I know high-end 17" CRT's can do much better than that, but not any of the models I ever see at Best Buy).
