Would be more of a resolution difference were the 1600p screen in the 23-24" range where the extra pixels aren't just covering the added real estate at the expense of rendering horsepower...

16:9 is better because some new games doesnt support 16:10 and in most games that support 16:10 you still get wider field of vision in 16:9 compared to 16:10.

For gaming I would buy 2560x1440 or 1920x1080.

This is also what i believe, that many 1920x1200 just are zoomed so you get a less wider picture.

Well, then you believe correctly cause thats the case.

I have a 16:10 and a 16:9 monitor and since the gaming industry started to use widescreen support 16:9 is to prefer. I think it is a little bit sad that the game developers dont care about 16:10 users any more.

the typical gamer difference are in 16:10 (1920x1200) vs 16:9 (1920x1080). and to me 16:9 is alot better than 16:10. /yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />

Games should be vertical + in 1920x1200 since the resolution is higher.
Can someone point me to a game in true 16:10?

I think you guys are kind of missing the point. Pixel density is just as important to a gamer or person interested in image quality.

a LESS WIDER picture? are you mad bro? compare 1920x1200 vs 1920x1080 and the ONLY difference there is that the horizontal resolution is less on the 1080 one. the 1920 donates how many pixels wide it is, so it is exactly the same for both resolutions.

1080 is better for films as you dont get black bars at the top and bottom. 1200 is beter for the internet/document reading as you get more lines of text.

either are good for gaming, i playes on a 1920x1200 monitor for years with no problems with games not supporting it asside from older games. I have two 1080 monitors now and they are equally good.

I was looking on a widescreen gaming forum.
All titles in 16:10 was zoomed and missing wide.
I found NO games with vertical +

So i say 16:9 is for gaming and 16:10 is useless beside windows desktop.

can someone point me to a game with vertical + in 16:10?

Even Withcer 2 does not current support 16:10, which gives you black bars top and bottom.
