Default Re: Need advice on new rig and build

16:9 have both standardized to HDTV resolution and also, as they are lower resolution than 16:10 (1920x1080 instead of 1920x1200), they can fit more in a panel.

As far as monitor size, it depends on your preferences and your desk space. All monitors will display their native resolution sharply, their pixels will just be bigger. I personally use a 32" HDTV as my monitor and love the size.

As far as running games @1080p for the next 2 years, it should not be much of a problem if you get a good card now. Most high end card run things up to 2500x1600 (look at recent reviews), so 1080p will be easy and keep some headroom.
