New Monitors 1920 x 1200 vs 2048 x 1152

Hi, I am looking to purchase a new monitor, but am stuck at choosing what resolution monitor to purchase. I don't really have an in depth knowledge of displays. I have a 4870 512MB card and I do game quite often. Which of the two resolutions is better? Anything closer to the 300 dollar mark would be great. Any recommendations on brands too?

Depends on what you use it for.

If you want to watch HD movies, get a 1920x1080 HD. that's the resolution of blu-ray, and 16:9 format which is great for movies. if you're going to computer games or just multitasking on the computer, probably go for the highest resolution you can find. i recommend DELL, they have great monitors at a great price.
