Practically all 24" widescreens are 1920x1200 so just ignore the W*GA labels.
There are basically 3 types of lcd panels: PVA (Patterned Vertical Alignment), IPS (In-Plane Switching), and TN (Twisted Nematic). TN panels are usually cheaper and have narrow viewing angles with noticeable off-center color shifts.
You'd have to look at reviews to determine the type of panel a monitor uses. Here's a fairly recent roundup of 24"ers.
Hey all. Been using laptops for the past few years, and been happy with them. However, now that my living situation has 'settled down' (moved 9 times in the last 2 years for my job), I am looking at building a desktop. I've kept myself up to date on video, CPU, memory and main boards, but haven't really done much looking at displays. Now that I am, there are some things that I'm not quite getting. Definitely want a widescreen LCD, around 24" with a resolution of 19xx X 12xx.
There are all these different 'types' of displays; WSXGA (some with a + sign), WUXGA and I think there was one more out there that I can't think of off the top of my head. So, haven't had much luck looking up sites that spell out the plus and minuses of the different display types. Was hoping for a good link to a site that goes through the different displays, or at the least a brief post by someone who can spell it out for me. I guess my overall question is: Which one runs Crysis best? (Sorry, couldn't resist )
