But not all games will let you run at native resolution, like Crysis and a few others. I thought about getting a 24 inch LCD but with the new DX10 I don't know what to expect from newer games using the new API, so I'm holding on to my 19" LCD for now. Hatachi just came out with an LCD thats only 35mm thick or 1.5 inches.

I agree with systemlord. I also am hanging on to my 19" for now.

I'm hanging on to my iiyama Vision Master Pro 450 aperture grill CRT. It runs at all resolutions flawlessly. :kaola:

Dont misunderstand that, when he says they wont be able to run on max resolution, they can, however framerates will be low.

This can simply be fixed by reducing graphical settings though.

IMO dropping resolution loses all the little key details anyway.

Atm I think 20inch 1680x1050 like physx7 said is the high point, nice one of those with 5ms or less response time and you're set.

Aside from the fact they cost under half the price lols.

You gotta realize that games will always be pushing graphics technology to the limits. Whenever you buy the fastest, most expensive GPU you can always bet that some game will bring your system to it knees in about 1 - 1.5 years after you buy the GPU.

If I do buy a new monitor/LCD it will be a 20" incher, don't like the dot pitch of the 22" inchers. My eye sight is 20/20 and can see the little squares (pixels) that make up a 22" inch LCD, and have seen a big difference between the 20-22" inch LCD's.
