    You don't know where I live :D

    Shipping would be more than nehalem itself

    And customs would keep it for like a year trying to figure out what it was :p

    If you sit the same the same distance from the 20" and 22" monitors at the same resolution. The 20" monitor is sharper.
    That is a fact by optic-physics, but biology physics and how fine the eye can see, it might not be true, that is still an on-going argument.

    I favor 20" monitors, and If i was going to get bigger I would get a 24" to get the smallest screen size+highest resolution to make it the sharpest.
    Also why I favor 37" 1080p TV's the most.

    Dude, you don't know how much fun a 30" Monitor is until you have used one.

    It is preference, and no, I don't know. but I hope everything I said puts some stuff into perspective.

    But people go nuts over having huge tv's/monitors these days when it doesn't equate.

    How far do you sit from your 30" ? Is it at a regular computer desk, Because I can't see that being ideal for my situation.

    For overall IQ, a 22" screen is excellent. I really wouldn't mind owning one as a secondary monitor. But my 24" Dell is better than any 22" I've ever seen. Pack the 1920 x 1200(higher than HD) resolution into a 24" monitor and you make HDTV look like a child's coloring book. It may not be a big screen, but it looks a hundred times crisper and is well big enough to sit on my desk and fill my field of view.

    The 42"+ HDTVs look like crap honestly. You need to be sat quite a ways away to make it look like HD. Very grainy and pixellated. Even when I was playing PC games on my sister's 50" screen, they needed AA badly. Luckily, AA cleans up the image considerably.

    That is exactly what I am saying.

    I just like the 20" though as my primary because I sit relatively close to my computer, a 24" is too big for my viewing distance. (I think it is for a lot of people and they don't realize it). My secondary is a 37" 1080p which is further away.

    See this chart http://www.carltonbale.com/wp-content/uploads/resolution_chart.png, also 24" is 1080p HD, not all HD's (1440p, however unnecessary will be a marketing boost sometime in the near future, maybe when the OLEDs are mainstream)

    LOL
    this thread has been taken over by screen and res. talk.

    I wouldn't mid having a 22" monitor with a res of 1650x1080, as I am used to using 1024x768, and now for the last few months 1280x800.

    It would be good enough, JUST AS LONG AS I WIN!!!!!!!

    For reference, the 30" monitor at 2560x1600 has a higher pixels per inch count to both a 20" 1680x1050 and 24" 1920x1200. (101 versus 99 and 94 respectively). I sit further from mine than usual, but not by much, it's about 16-20 inches perhaps.

    1440p - is that actually going to become a mainstream resolution? I would love it if it does, that's pixel perfect to fit on a 30" PC monitor, 2560 horizontal pixels :)
