    Definately the regular.
    Because if you began playing games on a 17", moving to a 19" is just an increase in size.
    Wheras a move to widescreen is moving to a different aspect ratio.

    Oh and btw, i have a similar model to that samsung (just non widescreen), and I am totally happy with it.
    Besides the scratches i accidentally did when i was throwing stuff in my room lol

    I like wide screen better for every thing as long as the wide screen is 27 inch or over.....

    wide screen is ergonomic for your eyeballs!!! People view more , better and faster from right to left or left to right as opposed to up and down or down and up:toast:

    Dom,

    The viewsonic model you chose is a decent price with the discount, HOWEVER, it does not support DVI interface so if you have a card that supports DVI or want it in the future the Samsung 19" you chose is a good choice.

    I have a 17" samsung and love it. I have a Samsung CRT and it was nice but took up WAY too much space on the desk! Something to be said for having clear desk space!

    I don't think you can go wrong with a Samsung.
    They've been around for ages, and I've never heard anything bad about em.

    You should thoroughly enjoy that monitor

    Couldnt tell you, never used LG and i dont know anyone who has. the only thing i have heard about LG is that their image processing tecnology can some times mess up fast moving images although that was to do with an 26" LCD TV and i dunno if it applies to this. As for the specs these are all claimed just like printer manufactures claim pages per minute some times they get close other times there way off the mark.

    they have lcd's as well, but normaly unless it needs to fit in a very small box i prefer crt, higher refreshrates and NO DEAD PIXELS!!!!!! also if you change res's you dont get that lovely imagequility loss that lcd's get(mines native 1600x1200 and anything lower gets fuzzy even with dvi-d connection) its quite frustrating :/
