Hi, I'm going to get a new monitor for someone, but im wondering if it would be better to get a 19" or a 17" monitor. I dont wont widescreen. The graphics card the pc has http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/Products.aspx?product_id=703686&cat_id=78 but im not sure what resolution it goes upto (on his pc I can drag the slider upto 1280x1024, but is that because the current monitor can only go up that far). Would this monitor be better for gaming http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126819/rb/27331136660 than this one http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119009/rb/27331156959. The 17" and 19" monitors only seem to go upto 1280x1024, so does that mean a 17" monitor would be better than a 19" monitor? You would still be able to fit the same amount of windows/stuff on a page, however it would be more spread out on a 19"?

dont worry. 1280x1024 is enough for most people. and make sure to get a monitor with at least 8ms response time!! :p

why though? How do you make that assumption.

The 8ms, does that mean it updates the whole screen every 8ms?

Yeah, that'll make video look smoother basically. I can tell a difference between two of my monitors, one with a 16ms response time and one with a 5ms response time.

Also, you get the added 2" of viewing space...
