I prefer 1440x900, it's much more... natural? For gaming. The human FOV is larger horizontally than vertically, so it makes sense to have a monitor that is larger horizontally than vertically. 1280x1024 is just a little wider than it is tall; 1440x900 is perfect. In my opinion the next step, 1600x900 (16:9, like 1920x1080) is too wide. 16:10 (1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050, 1920x1200) is perfect.
i know with my field of vision it is about 161degrees.... but I can see almost a complete 180 spectrum in front. 16:9 is a little more natural to me but if i can see a 1440x900 I would more then likely pick one up due to the less pixils.

You have tunnel vision to a certain extent?
Without your face literally an inch from the screen I think it will be okay for you to see 1440x900.
Go to a local shop/store and look at that resolution! Imagine how far your eyes would be from the screen at your desk etc and just mimic that when looking at screens at the store.

hehe, no i don't have tunnel vision, i can see within a wide angle. as in, if we put a center dot in front of us, I can see about 80.5 degrees + on either side.

I think maybe 20in may be best. Ya, this weekend i'll definitely take a look at bestbuy/futureshop.

80.5 inches on both sides of the center of the screen should be fine.
You know what a 90 degree angle is, just take a smidge off that. You will be able to see the screen with ease.
From the center of my screen(sitting about 2 ft away) I can estimate that the angle is about 20-30 degrees to the left and right. Now if you have your face RIGHT ON the monitor, and inch or two away, then that angle will widen dramatically.

hehehehee

I also going to need a nice comfortable mouse. the one's I've had haven't been all that comfortable for me (except for the razer diamond back i used to have....lost that one now too).

i have a pretty large palm with fingers shorter then the length between my rist and beginning of my fingers. anyone suggest a good mouse for that? plus, a good mouse pad. i agree with someone on another thread, a good mouse pad. suggestions?

I have a large palm and short fingers too! lol.
I'm using this small wireless mouse I picked up to 20$ though lol. Works great and is very comfortable for me.
And when I travel I can stick it in my laptop case too.

I'd recommend trying out a Logitech G500. Very comfortable mouse.


Also for keyboards, I'd recommend looking at mechanical keyboards, rather than gimmicky "gaming" keyboards or unreliable wireless keyboards. The ABS M1 is decent for gaming and can be had for ~$50 usually. I might sell you my Cherry G84-4100PPAUS mechanical keyboard for $20+shipping, not the best for typing on but it's great for gaming due to its small size, you can adjust your mouse hand and keyboard hand for maximum comfort. I used to use it as my primary, but my Compaq is a better compromise between typing and gaming. You can buy them on eBay for $25 shipped, but they're the German version so the layout is funky(er).

My friend has a g500 and i honestly thing it too much of a palm mouse. I like the palm to rest and for quick big movements. but for short movements, it takes too much muscle movements. D:

!!! i think i got a cheap mechanical keyboard now (plastic... and maybe it isn't mechanical, i'm not too sure, but looks almost identical (except for all the media buttons on the sides) as that one there. a bit larer tho.). one of the more old fashion layouts. It was the keyboard I learned on and works great. The only problem with it is that it has extended sides so it is kinda hard not to look at the keyboard sometimes to figure out where you fingers are exactly.

though i love it. it does help gaming and it does help me type even faster then the original (kinda harder keys to press, just making me more alert, etc.).

Thanks for the suggestions.

Well Mice don't really bother me. I find them all a bit comfortable. The mouse I linked mostly rests my palm only because it is very small, and my short finger can click easy on it. Its not cheap plastic either, its a grip like rubber. Great for me, I'm not picky on mice, but I like wireless and small mice.
