They're both 16:9 resolutions.

The FoV will be exactly the same, I think that's what you're getting at.

Yes, infact, 4:3 resolutions have less FoV than 16:9, 16:9 resolutions have the widest FoV, with 16:10 close second.

As far as actual game impact goes, it has absoloutely no difference, you won't notice it.

hmmmm...
either way it's still 16:9
I remember they did a 16:10 vs 16:9 vs 4:3 at different resolutions
you do see a bit more, the 16:10 gave a slight advantage

Yes, that's correct.

You will have a great Field Of View as long as you use a 16:9 resolution!
So no matter if you go 1600x900 or 1920x1080 you will be fine.

Just be sure to stay away from 16:10. It sucks big time for games (and most other things as well).

I tried to get SC2 to work on my tri monitor display but the developers limit it to one screen. From what I understand the SC2 community feels that tri monitor displays or anything with a bigger fov than 1920 x 1080 is cheating thus they patched anyway to make it possible.
