issues with my CRT
ok... everyone in my house has an LCD except of course yours truely.....
anyways.. it's a 17in MAG crt (yes it's hugh, and yes it takes up alot of real estate), it's probably close to 10yrs old, but works great, well i think it still does at least
anyways.. it keeps fading to like a pinkish color, or sometimes like a light purple shade (this happens daily).. what i have to do is kick the darn monitor cable and the color comes back... i've checked the connection into the video card and it's plugged-in there solid (this also was happening with my previous video card i had a few months ago.. so i don't think it's a video card issue)

I'm guessing that you will be joining the rest of the household with a new LCD...

It sounds like you're losing one colour of the three. It could be in the cable or one of the connections at each end, or I recall reading of some monitors losing an electronic component in the small card at the end of the gun (small end of the tube) which caused loss of a colour. Whatever the reason, the end result will be Shinma's response.
I picked up a 17" lcd for $20 at a yard sale this summer. That's the ultimate death knell for the crt monitor.

10 years is way past the normal life of a CRT. Start shopping now.

The native resolution is going to be around 1600x1050, so your video card would need to handle that. You get used to the extra real estate pretty quick.
