    I want to move to 24" from 22" but not sure. People who sues 24" pls share ur opinions. Native resolution supported well in games?

    a guy in another forum says

    *Buying a FULL HD PC monitor is useless? 1920x1080 16:9 is FULL HD and has HDMI. i dont think i will use my PS3 and xbox360 on my pc ..i already have separate HD TV for it so hdmı isS USELESS FOR ME on pc monitor.

    So a 1920x1200 16:10 monitor will simply do the job hu? iam currently on 22" Asus 16:10 1680*1050. 16:10 is sweet.

    From experience I moved from a 22" to a 24", the resolution change is what got me the most. Definitely recommended.

    Well HDMI isnt uselss for you as the only diffent between it and DVI is HDMI sends audio thru. Other then that its the same thing. And monprice has cheap DVI to HDMI cables too.

    Also I would say go for 24" If I was you I would grab the 1920x1080,I do wish I waited before I went to this 24" I have. But at the time 16:9 montiors wasnt even thought about.

    Hmm.thank u guys..but what about resolution?

    1-1920x1080 16:9

    2-1920x1200 16:10

    which is BEST? and more importantly supported by many titles without a problem.

    If it Games 4 windows title it would support 1920x1080/1200 by default. Alot of games supports both.Then I had some which supported 1920x1080 and not 1200, making me edit the ini. Personally I would recommand going with 1080 res for the same reasons which I explained, as I had to go thru changing inis and etc for 1920x1200, there was times I wished I had 1920x1080 native.

    But still there gonna be a few games out there that top out at 1280x1024 if they cheap budget games, some times they can be gotten around by ini edits or registy edits if not a 3rd party tool. Last game I played that annoyed me with no 1920x1200 was saint row 2 which had 1920x1080 instead if i remember right.

    I like my 24" Dell monitor for more than just games. I find that 4x3 content looks better on my 16x10 ratio (1920x1200) monitor then it does on a 16x9 tv, simply because 16x10 is taller. Documents and web pages, for example, are more legible because of the extra height. Of course, that all depends on the native resolution. Mine is 1920x1200.

    Also, being taller also allows you to fill more of the screen width-wise. 4x3 content can be TV, cable, Satellite, etc, but it also is great for older games that are made for CRT monitors of old.

    Besides, you can always view 1920x1080 content on a 1920x1200 monitor but you can't do the reverse.

    One more thing, the only reason to have an HDMI port on your 24" monitor is if you're going to use it for Blu-ray/HD-DVD, or Game console with HDMI. All video cards that are exclusively HDMI come with a HDMI-2-DVI adapter or cable.

    Another note, if you are going to use HDMI enabled gear then make sure the monitor also supports HDCP. Otherwise, you won't be able to view that secured HDMI content. However, if it has HDMI then it's very rare to not see HDCP along with it.

    The only reason I have a problem is because I run everything through my Yamaha receiver as a media hub. It has HDMI ins and outs along with everything else. Although, I wouldn't recommend running your computer through a middle device before it goes to your monitor. I'd go straight from the computer to the monitor.

    Anyway, having 2 HDMI ports or 1 HDMI and 1 DVI would be preferable. Again, if you're not worried about HDMI then disregard all of this. :)

    Yeah that's what I've got, I'd definitely recommend it, it's tough to beat for the price. Obviously it's a TN panel so it can't compare with S-IPS or TFTs, but the image quality is actually quite good imo.

    And btw Mr. Bigtime I'd recommend 19x12, I personally have never played a game that didn't support that resolution (except of course old ones like GlenClaymore mentioned) and I find the extra height useful for surfing and such, if anything I sometimes actually wish it was taller

    I would go for 1920x1200... more screen space for web browsing and stuff, which is mostly vertically limited.

    I love my 24", could never go back to anything smaller.

    my advice is to get 1920x1200 16:10, higher res, taller and it makes it possible for you to view larger images of standing porno models (for example :p)

    for games that don't have support for 16:9 16:10 you can find a guide for how to fix it on this page for most games http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

    My 26" screen has 1:1 pixels when using 1080p, no degrading in picture quality when using 1080p/720p. So I would pic 1900x1200 if the monitor has that option... Or which ever, choose the one that fits youre needs the best, but for PC use I would go for 1200 version. Also check out "Fujitsu Siemens AMILO LSL 3260W" cheep and great. Picture is good and with 5ms no problems when gaming either. And you get that 2 xtra inches for the price of a 24".

    Same.

    I just got a second monitor (LG L246WP-BN) for cheap and man it kicks ass. Produces better whites than my Westinghouse.
