You sure it's not 1920x1200??? That would be the widescreen format. Man those are nice Monitors. I love how thin the bezel is. I don't knot about the 24" but my wife has the Dell 20" 1600x1200 and the picture is absolutely awesome. Games great with no noticible ghoasting. And hers has a 25ms response time. While the 17" Westinghouse that my company bought for my desktop offshore has a 16ms response time yet has noticilbe ghoasting and blur.

So QSDT, the real question is, Are you glad you went the extra $200 and got the 24"? Cause that is the true measure of whether or not it was money well spent.

Yep your right it's 1920 x 1200 when the numbers get that big it's easy to make mistakes And I'll have to say that there NO regrets about the extra $200 well worth it.

I've gotta say I was worried about my 6600GT ability to run it but no problems with any of my games, COD2, BF2, Farcry.

once my wife had seen it, she wanted one. She wanted one more when i told her how cheap this one was.(263.95+tax)

Originally, i was gonna get a widescren monitor anyway, so as to have something that these bloody cards can really push...but when the CRT "died", I couldn't afford the one I wanted. Of course, buying this monitor came outta my savings for the widescreen...but I almost have enough now to get the 24" ACER(6msgtg/1000:1 contrast), so shortly i will be handing this monitor off the the wife.

And the "dead" CRT...well...I RMA'ed my crossfire mastercard, and wouldn't ya know, with the new card, it works...
