The 20.1 is 350.00 at tiger direct and the vx22 is 299.00 at tiger direct. I just can't decide. Play games by the way. Don't watch movies on my comp.

if your vid card can push the 1680x1050 resolution (which im sure it can, but i dont know if you like AA/AF), id probably go with the 20.1 inch.

Bigger is better, right? Widescreen is nice, too. You might want to get a 7900GT/X, though, to go along with it. :D If you want AA/AF that is.. like Vin said.

I think you misunderstood vin86 your card does support that resolution trust me he was trying to say you might not be able to run a game at that resoloution with acceptable performance

and do you know the difference between normal and widescreen monitors??

What if I go with this 19 inch. Do you think i would get good performance at 1440x900.

Or should i just go 19in normal?

I can see why $100 for 1". Man I dunno about that depends if the res is supported as the 20" WS res is now supported in some games because of Dell and other company's selling loads of 20" WS format LCDs. You will have to hack to get native res on games I think
