    Cool Monitor Optimal Resolution's Table

    Monitors Optimal Resolution's

    This is a rough guide for people new to computers or for people who just want to compare monitor resolutions.
    Screen Sizes range from 15" to 46" Widescreen. Some monitors may vary and you may not get the optimal resolution.


    PC Monitors

    15" CRT = 800*600 at 85Hz
    15" LCD = 1024*768 at 60Hz
    15.4" Wide LCD = 1280*800 at 60Hz
    16" Wide LCD = 1366*768 at 60Hz
    17" CRT = 1024*768 at 85Hz
    17" LCD = 1280*1024 at 60Hz
    17" Wide LCD = 1440*990 at 60Hz
    19" CRT = 1280*1024 at 85Hz
    19" LCD = 1280*1024 at 60Hz
    19" Wide LCD = 1440*990 at 60Hz
    19" Wide LCD = 1680*1050 at 60Hz (depends on model of 19" Wide-screen)
    20" CRT = 1280*1024 at 85Hz
    20" LCD = 1400*1050 at 60Hz
    20" Wide LCD = 1680*1050 at 60Hz
    20" 16:9 Wide LCD = 1600*900 at 60Hz
    21" LCD = 1600*1200 at 60Hz
    21.5" 16:9 Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz
    22" Wide LCD = 1680*1050 at 60Hz
    23" Wide LCD = 1440*990 at 60Hz
    24" Wide LCD = 1920*1200 at 60Hz
    24" 16:9 Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz
    25.5" Wide LCD = 1920*1200 at 60Hz
    26" Wide LCD = 1920*1200 at 60Hz
    27" Wide LCD = 1920*1200 at 60Hz
    28" Wide LCD = 1920*1200 at 60Hz
    30" Wide LCD = 2560*1600 at 60Hz

    TV based Monitors

    32" Wide LCD = 1366*768 at 60Hz
    32" Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz
    40" Wide LCD = 1366*768 at 60Hz
    40" Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz
    42" Wide LCD = 1366*768 at 60Hz
    42" Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz
    46" Wide LCD = 1366*768 at 60Hz
    46" Wide LCD = 1920*1080 at 60Hz

    On LCDs, you don't notice a difference from 60Hz and 75Hz, all it does is put an extra strain on your video card, by forcing it to refresh the screen 75 times. So ive been told, I could be wrong however.

    My eyes hurt at 60Hz on CRTs, but not on LCD monitors. Since all LCD monitors are flicker free.

    ive heard about that on the old crt moniters (the big heavy ones) but with lcd because it refreshes each screen fully 60 times a second it really shouldnt hurt your eyes as they cant see any more than 30 frames in a second.

    CRTs need to run at higher frequency, LCDs can get away with less. However, I have both here side-by-side, and in games the CRT absolutely destroys the LCD........no tearing, etc........butter smooth. Too bad a 24" LCD weighs something like a TONNE lol.

    Bah, I don't care about Crysis, it rather bored me to tears. For now I'll settle with a 24", 22", and 19". 30" FTW!!!

    TBH, I tried to do something( like browse web, write email ect.) on my 46'' LCD TV and I can sy one thing... its CR@P. Thats why I only watch movies on it and some times run a game( if currently no one is watching something else which is rather rare ). So in my opinion MAX resolution is 22'' if you wants to use everything on your PC...

    Well a larger monitor is fine if you have HDTV or Blu-Ray movies, otherwise the resolution is far too high for normal TV and it can't upscale worth a crap and look baaaaaaaad.
