    I got (I know above your requested price) the Dell 2407, which is brilliant! 24", 1920x1200 Res. and inputs for VGA,DVI,Analogue and Component, also has USB2 Hub, Card Reader built in and my favourite is that it swivels upright too!

    I have heard that the Asus 22" is a bargain, but so too is the Belinia 22".

    Cheers, MP.

    I may have asked this of you elsewhere, but am I correct in assuming you run FB-PF-1946 with your config.ini set to 'force' the resolution to your monitor's native resolution of 1920X1200?

    OK thanx guys for the inputs on klemlao's question.

    Here is another:

    I have a 19" CRT (4:3) screen which I am pretty happy with, but unfortunately it is very space consuming, leaving not very much room for other stuff on my desk. Also it starts to get a bit "worn".

    I have been thinking of getting a 22" widescreen flat screen for some time now, and I have been looking at the Samsung products (225B and 226B), as they are known for good quality.

    My CONCERN though is the resolution. I run the sim (pretty much the only game I play) at 1152x864. This works very well, both for discovering contacts but also for a decent fps (approx 35 with normal settings).

    If I get a 22" widescreen I guess I have to run the game at the native resolution (which is 1680x1050). I have tried to run the game on my CRT with 1600x1200 just to get an idea how much FPS loss there there would be, and how much the dots dissappear. I get a 10-15 FPS drop with this resolution and the dots are not at all that visable.

    So here is the question. How good is the picture on a similar 22" widescreen if I run the game NOT in the native resolution, but a lower one?

    Am I better off with my CRT until I get a better 'puter that can handle the native resolution?

    Thankful for any advice and inputs.

    Its the only way to get it running anything other than the default set of resolutions. Changing the res and aspect ratio in the conf.ini does it.

    Whoah! Good question F19-Orheim!

    I used to have a flatscreen 1280 x 1024 but ran it at 1024 x 768 and the monitor 'converted' it to native 1280 x 1024 so my 9600XT video card only had to generate 1024 x 768.

    BUT..... was that the best thing to do? Answers please.....

    Also, from other threads, I don't expect to get 'true' widescreen in IL2 as to fully widen it you have to lose some top and bottom picture if you keep the game aspect ratio the same. I don't think IL2 runs true widescreen.

    I am buying ahead of SOW:BoB and 'cos my old monitor just doesn't show up those dots very well. If I end up with 5:4 in IL2 so be it.

    Thanks again for the input guys and I look forward to your comments....

    The Samsung 226BW has gotten very good reviews. However, I had to return two of them because of various problems. On one, the onscreen controls did not work. On both the graphic quality was disappointing.I tested the monitors on another system and had similar problems. I also, tested the monitors on y system with a different video card with no improvement. Calibration did not significantly improve the display. I may just have had bad luck and I know there are people on these boards who have had very good experiences with that monitor.

    As the pixels (the little diodes really) of an LCD is of a fixed size that area of the screen can only display one color at a time, i.e. if an image is in the wrong resolution it will be displayed incorrectly as image pixels will either be displayed on two screen pixels or none as they where too large or too small for the physical screen pixels.
    I've avoided LCD's for this reason.
