1920 x 1200 allows you to see more on the screen because it gives you a "wider viewing angle" so that you can spot enemies more quickly.

"Nice" is subjective if you are talking about image quality and is different from one monitor model to another based on a lot of thing including the type of panel tech used.

TN panels has flooded the entire consumer market and most people buy this type of panel tech because it is inexpensive and have fast response times. For example, any 24" LCD monitor selling for less than $575 (unless on sale or rebate) uses a TN panel.

24" monitors using S-PVA, M-PVA and IPS panel techs are more expensive and "nicer" to me.

1440x900 is a horrible resolution that should be banned before it really becomes a standard.

Actually, most games keep a fixed field of view and just alter the resolution within the field of view for different resolutions. You don't get any wider of a viewing angle at 2560x1600 than at 1280x800. Higher resolution does look quite nice though - I would say there's a fairly big and noticeable difference between 1440x900 and 1920x1200.

well it depends on the monitor.

if you have a big monitor, say a 24-26 inch, of course the 1920x1200 will look better than the 1440x900 on it.

for me, i just use the monitors native resolution(19"-1440, 24-28" - 1920)

Well i have a 17" norwood micro and its native is 1024x768 which looks horrible. Its max is 1440x900 in which if i put it at that games like call of duty world at war and unreal tournament 3 look very nice.

Can someone post pictures of one of these games or any game with a 1440x900 vs 1920x1200 resolution screenshot>?

should i be using 1440x900 on my 17"? or 1024..cuz 1024 looks horrible
