(3D capable ones can be much more.) Some people use 1080p HDTVs as monitors, but I have the impression that may have problems. (TV makers don't always make monitor.inf files for their products.)

I recently looked at the 27" 2560X1440 IPS format, but I didn't buy one. ($700 up.)
Thanks for the info, out of curiosity for 1920x1080 which inch is the bet for it?

I cant imagine 21 inch and a 25 inch showing 1920x1080 would look exactly the same would it?

Would the 25 inch stretch it?

I guess I really need to look at monitors.
