    I wasn't sure to post this here or in the gizmos forum but here goes...

    I've been looking around for a new widescreen monitor to put next to my old one. I don't have a TV so I have my xbox connected to my current monitor via vga adapter. Recently I also acquired my girlfriend's PS3. I only have two inputs on this monitor so I'm looking for a new one, preferably with two hdmi inputs. I did manage to find one but it doesn't have any verticle tilt which would bother me considering how high my monitor is.

    My second problem arises with resolution. I don't want anything less than 1920 by 1200 resolution because I use 1600 by 1200 on my current monitor. I heard from someone that if you use an HD device (xbox or ps3) on a 1920 by 1200 monitor, it stretches to reach those extra 120 pixels. I find that to be annoying. Would all monitors with 120 by 1200 resolution do this? Is there any way to get around it?

    Not all monitors will improperly handle the aspect ratio like that.
    I suggest going to the "Displays" subforum at the [H] forums and ask there.
