  1. If you have a widescreen monitor why and what size? I am thinking about a 22" Samsung. Any recommendations?

    I have moved this to the video forum. You might get more hits there.

    I love my 19" widescreen [1440x900].... atleast coming from a 17" CRT...

    Make sure you have a beefy video card though, my Radeon X850XT (overclocked to beyond PE speeds) handles FEAR on 1440x900 [native res.] with everything but AA and texture resolution on maximum at about 46FPS....

    Given you have a Radeon X1800 or X1900 or 7800 or 7900 (or anything above those) you'll be very fine.

    I really like my 19" samsung (1440x900) widescreen. I wouldn't want to go back to a standard aspect ratio, although I wish pc widescreen monitors were actually 16:9 ratio(like tvs) instead of 16:10.

    Wider is better for me, but I know some people like standard aspect ratio, since they have more pixels vertically, so they can see more of a webpage at a time.
