Recently I put up a post asking whether it was worth it to upgrade from 1680x1050 display.

I'm considering two monitors and I was curious what the community thought of these 2 displays. It would be for decent use with HD Blu ray content and current games like BF3, Batman AA,AC, BL2, and SC2. I'm pretty set on ASUS they have a very strong RMA process for these displays and I hate companies who give you a long turn around on something like this.

23 1920x1080

Also I would like a monitor with a height and pivot adjustment as my desk makes it hard for larger displays to fit in the middle I'll post a picture so you can see. Emberassed that its a bit messy but what the hell.

Generally speaking, I recommend Asus monitors because they have good build quality (or at worst decent build quality) and they are relatively inexpensive.

I prefer 1920x1200 monitors over 1920x1080 monitors. However, there is over a $100 difference between the two monitors you've selected. Which would I choose? Naturally, the 24" 1920x1200 monitor.

You could get the smaller and cheaper 1920x1080 monitors and then use the money use saved on some wired trays to organize your things.

I would naturally go dell if there customer support wasn't awful that is why I would like to go with ASUS. Is the 23 inch 16x9? Not sure how to figure that out by looking at a monitor the 24 inch says 16:10 aspect but the 23 doesn't state the aspect ratio.

The front isn't as bad cable wise its the back. I have 2 usb cables for my razer keyboard 1 for my mouse 2 for my astro a40 1 for my mouse one for my cam my 5.1 speakers that I don't use no doubt I need to clean stuff up :p

I received an email from toms saying I received some answers on the thread but I don't believe I have exactly the answers I'm after I have direction but still in the haze.

Trying to sort out the 16x9 and 16x10 differences, if there would be any felt difference watching blu rays or games at with a 1200p resolution, and what cable would I get for the monitors display port seems to be the premium cable on monitors or just go with HDMI shrugs.
