    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.

    I'd rather have a couple of 19" than a 24".

    Or a couple of 24" :p 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).

    I wouldn't do anything under 22" myself.

    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.

    I think 22" Wedescreen are the best size,Anthing bigger and it would probably annoy me tbh.

    i also have a 19" widescreen which is good.

    buy a "19 and pull your seat closer to the desk then it would be like a "22
