    I was told widescreen is the way to go these days..its better for games aparently. You get more of a view is what I was told. I was just wondering what the pros and cons are to as opposed to a normal square LCD.

    Also, how does this one look?

    Just take note that a 19" widescreen is smaller than the regular 19" screen

    Really... Can you tell me. Say I knew nothing about these things (which I almost dont) Why should I pick a widescreen over a regular screen, or vise versa?

    The pro would most likey be for widescreen movies(16:9) since the monitor is 16:10.
    The only con would be if the game you plan on playing supports widescreen and if you video card is fairly new it should as well.

    I also still play BF42..I thought hockey and fifa would look cool on a wide screen..but if its going to cause problems with game compatability I wont bother.
