The best reason for getting 1200 over 1080 is because a lot of older games still have a 1600x1200 resolution option. There's nothing compatible with 1080. If you only play modern games, this point is moot but it is a no brainer for older titles.

Soooo...has anyone found a decent 1920x1200 gaming monitor yet? Even amongst the Korean ones? At least do the mainstream ones (AoC, Dell, Asus) reach 75Hz?

I'm looking at a BenQ BL2411PT IPS as my new monitor, currently I'm using a Samsung S24B350 (1920X1080) but I'm not happy with it (it's not flicker free and it's TN) I would like to get back to proper PC resolution.

Nice necro :p
I can't recommend Dell U2415 enough. And the price is, for the quality you'd get, unbeatable.
