Default Best size computer monitor?

Im about to build my own computer and I was wondering how big of a monitor to get. I wasnt sure which is the best choice when considering resolution and what not. I was thinking about getting around 22" or so but I saw a 23.6" asus on Newegg that looked cool. Does the weird size of the monitor, 23.6" affect anything negatively?

Thanks in advance

It's just a 16:9 and a 16:10 ratio difference.


The 22"s usually offer 1680x1050 and the 23"s offer a 1920x1080 and sometimes a 1920x1200.

Lol, i cant argue that the high priced NEC monitors are bar none the best ones made, but in the actually affordable sector i love the asus monitors. This is an excellent monitor:

Or a couple of 24" Actually just having any monitor as a secondary is great, atm i have a 21.6" main and 15" secondary(soon to be 25.5" main and 21.6" secondary).

How About This..?

HP W2338H 23-Inch Widescreen Monitor


Great color, nice and bright display, well made.
The only comparable in size and cost is the Acer Computer X233H BD 23" Widescreen LCD Monitor.
First of all, the Acer has a flat picture. Less glare but the picture and graphics of the HP really come out at you. They are sharper and crisper than the Acer.

The larger the better, however due to this monitor's unconventional screen size, you will have a more of a 16:10 screen size, hence your display will be more squarish than the widescreen, anyway, no the wierd size does not matter. and Asus is a market king in IT products. go for it.
