Im looking to buy a new TFT monitor, but I have no clue about the which resolution size would fit better. I have a choice of 1280 x 1024 or a widescreen at 1440 x 900. Please help me decide which is best. Here are two links to the rest of the info if needed:
1440x900 is slightly widescreen, and 1280x1024, though a bit distorted is a much more common resolution. It all depends on what you are using the monitor for. For video editting or viewing and such like that, I would suggest 1440x900. For gaming, I would suggest 1280x1024.
Considering more of the website viewers will probably be viewing the site at 1280x1024 than 1440x900, I would say 1280x1024, simply because it would be easier for you to design the site to work for your native resolution (1280x1024) than guessing how it would look from 1440x900.
