We didn't need dual-core processors when they came out, we really can't use hexacore processors to their full potential but hardware just keeps getting better and better...I'm kinda in the camp of "why not" improve tvs and monitors...but again, i'm not up-to-date with video tech so maybe i'm just missing something...

The computer industry is a very small portion of the total market in video, or really anything pertaining to 1080p resolutions
Currently there are no consumer grade standards that surpass 1080i/1080p as far as video goes. The only standards above 1080p is 2k and 4k, both of which you will only find on RED cameras and are almost exclusively used for high budget productions.
In addition, comparing the cost of a 2560x1600 monitor with a 1920x1080 monitor, it is not necessarily the most cost-effective option to expand further in terms of resolution.

The reason why I believe 1080p is frowned upon in this forum in particular is because we're all die hard computer hardware enthusiasts. Our hardware is more than capable of 1080p and is years ahead, but you have to acknowledge that gaming resolution is not the only factor in determing video standards.

You also have to consider I despise AA on LCDs too. I never used it on any display in anything but very very cartoonish games. It's not just because of my CRTs. I hate the concept of AA most of the time.
You know, I've always thought the same thing for some reason? Ever since switching to LCDs I've been running at 0xAA. I dunno, it's like AA isn't doing what it's supposed to. I think it's because the ghosting.

For me, it's more like, the AA removes the jagged edges, though the image is still limited in clarity by the physical pixels. And having a "blurry" image, yet not being able to see the pixels themselves is something that I don't enjoy.

Call me weird but I think games look better without AA. Regardless of display type.

Unfortunately for ppl who are discouraged about the 1080p being mainstream it will be that way for another good while. As console games are just starting to break into the 1080p realm....still tons of money to be made at 1080p by manufacturers and that is what THEY care about...

This has nothing to do with 1080p, it's obviously due to your monitors native 16:10 resolution.

1080p is annoying since it's:
  1. 16:9
  2. Been around forever
  3. seems like it's preventing higher resolution standards from becoming mainstream

Jaggies are bad enough in still images but when the image is a moving one the jaggies crawl and shift about causing eye castration, headaches and an angry trip to the CP (or third party tools) to find a way of forcing any kind of AA.

Depends on your pixel density. I find it quite tolerable in fact. If you don't pay attention to it, you get used to it. Much better than AA, anyways.

I'm still at 1680x1050 and it'll stay that way until GPU's can properly handle 1080p without a slowdown. :/

Also, AA can get lost in my opinion. I'd rather have stable framerates than blurry edges.

this how i see it until graphics card are powerful enough to drive a 30" monitor with sweating without getting a beating from the pixels then thats the day i'll ditch 1080p.. but until that day comes i stick with 1080p reso

Yeah I know what you're talking about. On the FW900 I liked it the best at 2xAA or 4xAA, depending on the game. It was just enough to get rid of the super-jaggy edges, but it still left the image sharp. Going higher would blur the edges a bit, but it also brought out the shapes of polygons more.

But on LCDs I don't like even 2x so I don't know.
