    my 7800gt is connected to a 6 year old crt monitor. When I drag a window on the desktop across the screen, their is delay like a tail behind it. Also when you quite a game or program such as 3dmark, the mouse pointer disappears, the only way to make it reappear is to right click. Is this my monitor not keeping up or the graphics card has a prob?

    it is most likly vid card related as the old monitor is more likly to only limit you to resolution such as aoly letting you have a settoing as 800 by 600 as opposed to 1024 by 768.

    i know this as i have a few monitors here that are quite older then your 6 year old one and they have no problem displaying graphics as long as the settings are 800 by 600
