Many new games coming out only properly support 16:9 resolutions (assassins creed, im looking at you)
I'd say that most new games support pretty much any resolution fine up to 2560x1440 and above, I remember there was a discussion about this in another thread a while ago, and there were only one or two games released in the last couple of years that don't perfectly support different aspect ratios (and I believe one of those could be fixed with a hack).

This man said it.


I still use 4:3 though. It does feel limiting because of the lost FOV over 16:9, from which I came, but I'm planning on two other 4:3 monitors next to it (if I can find some) to do 3x 4:3 eyefinity. Over double the width of 16:9 as an aspect ratio.

This monitor just looks that much better, that even though I've got a 16:9 as a secondary monitor, I choose to use this one, since this one has a huge pixel density at 2048x1536 over 20" of viewable area.

Whether you want to admit or not, your 4:3, 5:4, and yes, 16:10 monitor are outdated and are not being produced anymore. 16:9 is clearly the future.

Since probably 90 percent of all LCD in world are 16:9 (you have to include tvs) games are going to be primarily developed with 16:9 in mind.

Also, LED has problems, but is still clearly superior overall as it helps with LCD biggest problem, which is black levels and contrast.

Only if console ports get worse. 3x 4:3 would be superior to 16:9 in every way possible. It's only if games stop supporting eyefinity and start doing 16:9 only, that I have to transfer to there. Which woudl not be an issue because I got a 16:9 monitor anyways. And any other monitor can do 16:9 letterboxed.

Besides. There are TWO Games that have issues with non 16:9, and the other one is fixable. Issues where?

Black levels suck because of blue tint.

Contrast? Not that important IMO but IPS monitors with traditional CCFL backlight can get much brighter than LED monitors while also having better (and purer) blacks.

OK so 24" sounds like it will be fine. Now I just need to decide on LCD vs. LCD with LED backlight. Which one would you suggest for web design?

Also, how many Hz does this monitor go to?
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=53667

It says:

Horizontal Frequency(KHz) 20 - 83 (KHz)
Vertical Frequency(Hz) 50 - 76 (Hz)

So I am kind of confused. Does that mean it will support the ranges of 50-76Hz? (76 seems like a weird number)

Thanks

LCD vs LED is a gross overgeneralization. The panel itself, not the type of backlight, is the main factor. Though LED Monitors usually have lots of issues.

That monitor most likely goes up to 60hz, since I don't think anyone makes 75hz or 85hz monitors anymore. I think it's 60hz and 120hz these days. Ntohing else.

My Samsung 19" goes up to 75Hz and it's LCD

Why does that BenQ say
Horizontal Frequency(KHz) 20 - 83 (KHz)
Vertical Frequency(Hz) 50 - 76 (Hz)

When it only supports 60Hz? Seems kind of misleading..

That's because it's an old model. 1280x1024 and 19"

I've not seen a single 1920x1080 monitor that can do 75hz.

All 3 Assassins Creeds on PC are 16:9 anamorphic

Mirrors Edge is 16:9 anamorphic

Resident Evil 4 is 16:9 anamorphic (good game with hi res texture mod)

Youre are right though, every one of these games can be hacked to run proper on square or 16:10 monitor. Im just pointing out that devs are getting lazier and you never know when they may phase out support for other aspect ratios.

The other benefit to 16:9 is to the movie buff who watches lots of widescreen movies.

Ah...
I wonder if I will notice any difference between my 75Hz and 60Hz downgrade?

But I notice in gaming if I have vsync enabled it only runs at 60FPS anyways.. Even with my monitors set to 75Hz. So maybe there wouldn't be any difference except for mouse trails and video that goes above 60FPS?
