Advantages of a Widescreen monitor?
Ive been looking into a widescreen monitor lately, but I cant really seem to find any real advantages with it (atleast for gaming). Basically the way I understand it, is it is either going to run in 16:9, which would simply stretch the image on the monitor. Or, when you are playing a PC game, does it actually give you more peripheral visibility? I dont understand. One negative aspect is that it requires more CPU power to run it..?
Can somebody fill me in here?
