Default Can somone help me find a new LCD monitor.

I am currently looking for a new lcd monitor. I will be using it alot for games and video like watching movies so it needs to look great. Im not sure if I should make the switch to widescreen or not. Like if I watch a video that isnt widscreen will I have bars on the sides? I have a 19 inch monitor now and was thinking about getting a 20 inch this time but Im not sure. I would like to keep the price below $350. If anyone has some good ideas let me know and thanks for the help.

I've got a Widescreen Gateway 19" LCD and I love it. I would say look into widescreen LCDs. Most DVDs either come in Widescreen or Full Screen. Some have both on the same CD. Check out that 19" Gateway Widescreen. You can even watch HD on it if you have it.
