ohhh i just saved you from a double post :P, your post appeared like half a second after mine did lol.

Sceptre is good eh? cool. I don't think the difference between 6ms and 8ms is anything to even care about.

So as long as i'm conservative (like i've always been with my dad's LCD monitor) I should have no problems..

Do you like to watch movies? You'll appreciate it for that. As for games, my Sceptre hasn't failed me yet. Performs flawlessly.

Yeah, alvino has a mother of a moniter. Same brand. They seem great for widescreen.. I say go for it. As you take good care of your stuff. You worry about all this, but when you get it, there wont be a sinlge thing to worry about.

I like to watch movies quite a bit. I also use this computer for work and such. So it's not an all-gaming PC. I know this Widescreen will kick ass for movies and work and the such, but if your having lots of luck with yours in games.. then hell, I might as well get it.

The only thing I don't like about this one is the fact it can only push 1440x900...

I kinda want to get your monitor, naga3..

Costs quite a bit more... You think it's worth the extra cash, alvino?

Monniters can go past their max as it says on newegg. It says the max for a 17'' is like 1280x768 but i can push it to 1280x1224. But its a CRT so really I only put it at 1280x960. My point, is that it will go smaller. Although, im sure that resolution will be just fine

I don't think LCDs can go past thier native resolution. meaning I can't use 1280x1024, the max resolution i'll be able to use in games that don't support widescreen is 1024x768.

yeah, 1680x1050 is it's native resolution. The one i'm looking at can't do that. That is one PRETTY monitor... mmm.... I want..

I wish I could see a picture of both of them next to each other, doing some comparisons

standard looked the best to me I don't like wide screen movies it's really up to you if you want to see everything in wide screen it's your choice in my experience wide screen monitors are a little dim and the picture is a little weird
