So I was planing on getting a 29" monitor with an aspect ratio of 21:9 (which I would use for gaming and Video capture for youtube) but I was told by a friend that recording with an aspect ratio like that will look weird on other peoples standard 16:9 monitor/Tv. So is it possible to have my Tv mirror my monitor but for fraps to record the TV screen?

Whichever monitor is your primary is the one FRAPS is going to record. As far as I know, when you play a game in full-screen mode, you can't mirror it to a monitor of a different resolution.

Gaming on the 29" monitor will be pretty cool. Based on reviews I've read on the 29" 21:9 monitors, the Asus MX299Q seems to have the least amount of input lag and the best reviews all-around. This is the one I'd go with if picking up a 29" monitor.

If i get the 29inch will it have a different aspect ratio on another monitor and look weird?

It's going to have the black bars on playback.

This is how playback will look on a 1080p screen:

Will it look weird? I don't think so.
