my 1998 17" crt is starting to annoy me. time to upgrade. i have a geforce 128mb 8x AGP video card with both digital and anaolg outputs (as well as s-video), so thats not an issue. I'm thinking 19 or 20" lcd. i would REALLY like to get a wide screen monitor. i love widescreen. scrolling down is ok- scrolling left to right sucks but, my video card's resolution isn't cut out for it i dont think. my max settings are 1280x768, 1280x960, and 1280x1024....which means i would probably ahve to run the first, 1280x768 to not make everythign oblong. if i remember right, a 19 or 20" lcd has its oem resolution in the 1600 territory for width. so, option a: spend a shit load of money upgrade mother board to a pci-e style get a 256 wide-screen designed video card monitor wide screen lcd option b: spend a lot of money upgrade video card to 8x agp that supports widescreen resolutions widescreen lcd option c: spend some money keep vid card buy wide screen lcd, deal with the lack of a good resolution option option d: spend a little less money keep vid card buy normal 4:3 lcd option e: spend no money. i have a perfectly functioning monitor... i'm just a snob like that... i don't really have a budget at this point... i'm kinda just pricing some things out and seeing where they fit into my plan. i've got 2k coming to me from left over parts that i have a deposit on in a week or so... and probably about the same from tax returns. at the same time, the hatch needs suspenion ($1500) brake upgrade ($1000), and some ao32r's (750) so that i can rule street mod this season (god willing of course ) so, most of that is already "spent" other than that, im not "hurting" but i really don't want to blow a G on a new monitor when the one i have works perfectly fine.... its just, well, old, and i'm a Snob like that but i kinda want one uses- i NEVER watch movies on my computer. i have a 42" plasma for that i rarely watch divx movies on my computer either-- unless its porn lol i really don't do a lot of video. my main want for the wider/bigger monitor is that i i like to keep a lot of things running- and things that have multiple columns- like outlook (even though i don't use it) has its three colum setup with a certain preview mode) it would just give me some more room. i dunno... thoughts? links to some good deals? companies?
