Default widescreen or 4:3?

Which do you guys reccomend for me to use as a monitor format?

My primary uses are web browing CS 1.6 Halo TV in MCE2k5 watching Naruto lol (anime freak :[ ) Watching some movies not many dvds pirated movies some of them are >_> <_< And yea I play CS:S so I'm planning on getting a 20" WS LCD with like a 1680x1050 resolution. It's between that and a 1600x1200 20.1 4:3 LCD so pleas help lol!

and office stuff like writing essays and power points...AIM etc..

Widescreen is amazing! I have a widescreen notebook and it's much nicer than my 4:3 desktop monitor, you see so much more!

Seems like you're a movie freak, so i'd say widescreen for the cinema effect
