    My room....new setup.....x1900xt video card

    Uses:
    A lot of watching TV shows/movies/DVDs
    Gaming
    Photo/Video Editing
    the obvious (office + internet)

    Budget around 300-350

    I was originally set on the Dell 20" Widescreen but then read that it lacks some support with certain games due to an irregular resolution or something like that?

    In your opininons, widescreen, normal or dual normal?

    Dual wide's. And that whole "some games don't support" isn't really true, you can still view games in 800x600 in a widescreen format just fine.

    So ya widescreen for sure (once you go wide, you don't go back).
