Seriously. This shouldnt even need to be discussed in 2011. 16:9 is the best aspect ratio for games so 2560x1440 and 1920x1080 should be the only options really.
This apparently DOES need to be discussed because you throwing out a lot misinformation. Have you ever sat side by side with the two aspect ratios to see what is lost? First of all, no modern game has "black bars" or "stretching" at different aspect ratios. Modern engines are able to scale their image meaning you get none of what you claimed.
Secondly I HAVE say a 16:10 and 16:9 monitor side by side and looked at the difference. You want to know how much peripheral vision you lose at 16:10? A sliver
. Basically in one scene lets say there was a sign that said "Bathroom" right at the edge of the display. In the 16:10 it might be cut off at the "h", so you would see "hroom" and on the 16:9 it was cut off at the a, so you would see "athroom". Literally, it was like take whatever is on the edge of your viewable area on the 16:10, then move out the screen a quarter of an inch and that was the difference.
I don't know why people insist on keeping these myths alive, maybe they are trying to justify their cheaper 1080 panels, I don't know, but all you have to do is compare them yourself to see that the difference in peripheral vision is minuscule.

Thanks, now I can put my min=21.74, max 29.61, average 26.22.

Not really. Most of the LED monitor's today use white LED back-lighting, so you actually end up with worse color gamut then w/a fluorescent back-light. I have heard some people say good things about 120Hz panels but unfortunately have not yet been able to see one first hand. I have seen video of a strange bug in Fallout 3 on a 120Hz panel where everything happened twice as fast in game, but I am sure that is an isolated incident. Of course if you have any interest in current 3d tech you'll need 120Hz, personally I hate shutter glasses 3d but to each their own.Edited by Mygaffer - 5/30/11 at 2:48pm
