I have a 21.5" 1920x1080 monitor.

But I have to agree, 16:10 > 16:9.

1920x1200 FTW!

That's pretty much me. For my Xbox I use a screen for my projector, a nice DaLite. It's 92 inches and it was HUGE on my wall in the condo I used to live in. Now that I'm in an actual house, the wall that I am using now dwarfs my screen and now it seems kinda small, lol.

Anyway, to contribute to the actual thread, I just got my two Asus PA238Q 23" IPS monitors from the Brown Santa, Mr Ups man himself yesterday. I debated between getting two 23" or a single 27". I'm glad I went with the two 23's. These are quite big enough for my tastes, plus I'll eventually get a third for an Eyefinity setup. I figured three 27" panels would be too overboard...as if 3x23" isn't going overboard already.

2 1/2 feet away from a 27" 2560x1440 for most games, 23" 1080p 120HZ for FPS.

Went from a 30" at 2560 1600 and a 24" at 1920 1200 to just a single 30" and I am loving it better than the dual monitor solution

Nice amount of replies!

Would this be a good monitor for gaming on (I play mainly FPS)?

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=18273

I was really considering this monitor for my gaming needs.

Also what is the differece between 1080p and 1200p (and 16:9 vs 16:10)? Is it really noticeable? I have seen very few 1200p monitors.

Thanks!
