Default Re: Dell 2405FPW and 6800GT: Good Gaming Combination?

Go to to read up on WS gaimng.

I'm loving this monitor, even when in aspect ration mode (black bars) its fantastic and the bars are dark black like the bezel (you won't even notice them).

I came from a 21" Sony CRT which is a great monitor and the 2405W is a couple of steps up, I think you'll like it.

WoW DOES run widescreen and my 2405FPW runs it very nicely at 1920x1200. However if you look at my sig, I run SLI. Very nice monitor though and I would highly recommend it!
