Basically, the Dell is at the absolute roof of my budget. I would like an LCD that is reasonably priced, good for gaming, widescreen ratio. Both these monitors have that, and it seems that the difference is 1.1". I ask: is the extra 1.1" even worth the $200 price difference? Will I notice that much difference in real estate? I'm coming from an old 17" CRT, so basically anything will be an upgrade. Also, resolution is an issue since I do have trouble seeing. There is absoloutely no way my eyes could decipher text on either of the high resolutions these panels run at, so I will probably end up running it in the non-suggested resolution. How well does that monitor take to that?
