no, not really...

Especially for gaming purposes not really. Benchmarking and folding are a completely different matter altogether.

Where's the option for Eyefinity/surround at 3 x 23" monitors? The poll goes from 20-22" to 24"

My resolution is 6088 x 1080 (bezel compensated 5760 x 1080) so I voted other.

The poll would be better served to just use the actual resolutions for Eyefinity/surround like the rest of it.

Oh, I know, but I was speaking of the vast majority of modern games today. They are "hor+" scaling, meaning a wider aspect ratio gives a wider FOV. Games back then were pretty much made for the only standard (then 4:3) aspect ratio, so when other aspect ratios, like the then emerging 16:10 widescreen ratios/resolutions, were used, they lost vertical view in those games, and this was known as "vert-".

1920 x 1080 users always complain about tabs in their browsers because they actually have little vertical resolution. You are paying less for less usable screen resolution. A 24" 1080p screen has the vertical usable space of a 20" 1200p monitor.
What do tabs and browsers have to do with gaming?

1920x1200 has less FOV than 1920x1080, so it's not as ideal for most modern gaming.

That being said, 1920x1200 users can simply choose 1920x1080 and get some Black space/cropping and get the same effect. So, in effect, they're monitor becomes 16:9 during gaming but retains the extra vertical estate otherwise (at the desktop).

Oh I know those terms all too well. I've spent some time lurking WSGF, though never joined.
