1920×1200 Flatscreen Monitors (25th August 2011)

Thinking about buying a 24″ panel monitor running that resulution. 2nd-hand prices are still pretty steep but I saw a great one go for £170.

Looks like my graphics card will just about support that resolution over it’s solitary VGA connection. It currently drives a bulky 18″ 1600×1200 CRT screen. Replacing it with a flat panel would save a lot of space.

Ultimate goal would be to run both screens at once, with the 24″ one in portrait mode. But I’d need a better graphics card for that. Getting one which can run two ~HD outputs and still support ancient games like GTA2 might be a tall order!

Still, it is right to treat oneself from time to time. Especially when things are good.
