OMSG.. A physically bigger screen is always better no matter the resolution, but as a general rule, 800x600 resolution screen would be the minimal (smalest) resolution to start with.

A 15 inch LCD screen is a bit small, but anything from 17 inch upwards would be better.

Most LCD screen come with 1024x768 or better resolution which is OK. Just the physical size should be 17 inch bigger.

Hope that helps you

The best resolution for IL2 is 1024/768 (talking about DOT's visibility).

At higher resolution airplanes are more difficult to spot (I'm playing 1680/1050 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )

So search for a LCD with the NATIVE resolution of 1024/768 (if still they exist)

You can never be too rich , too thin or have too big a pc monitor!Of course the 1024x768 dot thing is SO true...I have a Dell 30" monitor and while at 2560x1600 the game would bring a tear to a glass eye I pretty much HAVE to play at 1024x768 to see the enemy dots (online) ...may as well be flying round in FSX on a passenger transfer 'mission' otherwise...Of course the high res looks great on other games.

I recommend that you go no lower than 24" if you can swing it.... and higher if you can. As long as your video card can run it you should be good. I fly on a 24" LCD... and I know guys flying on 28,32,48 and higher.. It all depends on your PC.. but I wouldnt go lower than 24".. and BTW I fly at 1920x1200 res..

Agreed, I fly at 1920x1200 and see dots just fine.

I have a '22 wide and fly at 1680x1050.
No problems with spotting "dots" online.

Biggest/widest? It depends on how far you sit from the screen does it not?

For normal desktop and gaming I personally think that 42" panel is the maximum when the display is where the normal displays are (0.5m or something like that?). I myself used to play with 37" from that distance and I felt that the display could be few inches bigger but bigger than that would be trouble. But when the distance grows so does the display, from 3m distance a 90" picture feels like its nothing special.

IMHO, the only limiting factor is the size of the wall you hang your display on.

The bigger, the better.
