Comments before the thread is locked by Krikkit (like the last one Steve.E went a touch unnecessary in) - please don't assume that anyone who is a member of the WSGF community is a fanatic for "How wide can you go?" and "Which is better?" arguments on aspect ratio. I'm a sometime poster there, most of the guys are more concerned with getting the most of what they have, just focussing on aspect ratios other than 4:3. They have some superb tweaks if you're running non-standard resolutions for any reason, particularly where nVidia Surround and AMD Eyefinity are concerned as well as anyone still using SoftTH or Matrox Triplehead. @Steve.E.: Lighten up a touch and please stop derailing every honest question about monitors with "16:9 is the only true way! All others are heretics! Burn the heretic!" rhetoric. We have enough of that already with "120Hz is da King!" and "If you're not using IPS you're a Philistine!" arguments. You do have a point which is accurate in some instances, it just doesn't apply to all. Most current FPS games are on a single level so horizontal FOV becomes more important but if you have one that deals with the vertical as well then that extra 120 pixels can make a subtle, but important, difference as the additional vertical FOV outweighs the horizontal. Horses for courses. The difference is truly minimal until you get to the ultra widescreen resolutions some of us use when vert- and hor+ become truly meaningful terms (as well as HUD tweaks - L4D2 is glorious at 24:5 aspect ratio but you seriously need to tweak the **** out of the HUD so it's usable!) If you frequent WSGF then please learn the difference between vert- and hor+ as the folks there explain it better than anywhere else. It puts everything in to perspective. This is not a flame or a dig, only comments. If you truly wish to discuss the benefits of 16:9 over 16:10 with regards to FPS games then may I suggest that you create a thread in the Gaming section regarding it? Expect a reasoned argument in response as well as being expected to give a well constructed rebuttal rather than citing the exact same opinions again. Personally, I look forwards to it (should you choose to do so) but please be prepared to back up your arguments with screen shots at different resolutions of exactly the same thing (as per Pookeyhead). TL;DR - Chill dude, you have a point but you're making it in the wrong place and being an arse while you're at it. You want to discuss, argue or debate? Start a thread in gaming. Provide screen shots to support your argument. Please stop dragging WSGF in the mud as we're mostly not zealots, just folks who may have an extra monitor or few who consider FOV limits as something to be worked around.
