1920x1200 Yes please (24")

QSXGA is just crazy :freak:
yes 1920x1200 really is an awesome resolution.. im' in love w/ it.. working w/ photoshop n' such has never been so easy.. and w/ my seperate 15 inch lcd i have, i use that for all my tools and layers and what-not.. definitely awesome for graphic desinging or anything in the general area of work

and my monitor (3000:1 dynamic) definitely looks amazing w/ colors... definitely the best 24 inch i've ever seen 2ms response time.. you can't go wrong...

What about for a guy like me...I'm not a gamer...would a 24 be a over kill?
I'm thinking the 22 will be good enough for Internet reserch??

it really just depends on how much desktop space you like. 22" i think would be plenty for browsing the Internet, a 19" is probably the perfect size for that.

would It be possible to look at 2 windows at the same time with the 22" or the 24" eg. Like having this widow open and also have a weather radar going at the same time?
Thanks

As long as you dont have the windows maximized you can have all kinds of stuff open. Thats why i love my 24" monitor. Tons of space.

yeah i'll have itunes or winamp open with visualizers on one side, and then tech forums open in firefox on the other, or i'll put a TV station on the right side of my screen while keeping firefox maximized.
