    So I decided to finally join the 5+ yr old revolution and get a LCD monitor but I cannot decide if I should get a widescreen monitor or just a regular one. I play a little WoW, so does my girlfriend then other than that I surf, use Maple and watch movies on my computer. Do most video cards have a driver that you can download to move to the native 1440x900 resolution of the widescreen monitors or do you need to get a card that specifically is for widescreen monitors? I have a Radeon X800GT.

    Widescreen is the way to go, I just bought a 22inch and I'm in love with it.

    If you video card supports up to 1440x900 then it should support up to the same ratio in widescreen.

    That Radeon would easily handle 1440x900
