    It's not that straightforward,
    Your graphics card and how efficient your PC is etc
    Games are "on-the- fly", thats to say what happens
    on the screen is live - dependent on your interaction.
    Monitors come in all flavors, factors for gaming
    require good response times, refresh rates etc.
    In very simple terms that is how good the monitor
    is at pixel rendition, switching colors etc
    Pick the wrong monitor for gaming you'll get
    smearing, poor rendition etc etc.

    Well it appears to depend if you want to play the game in widescreen,
    some do, others can be forced and some can't,

    Otherwise you simply get the same display on a widescreen as non wide.

    As tesco.net get a copy of Custom PC Issue 039 Dec 2006 for the extreme
    widescreen gaming article, www.custompc.co.uk and the 2nd article force
    troublesome games to run at ws resolutions. Mentioned utilities and web
    sites.

    Sounds interesting 2560 x 1600 on 30 inch widescreen.

    If not www.google.com, yet again as if you haven't guessed.

    Then again if you havent checked any of the gaming sites for games you
    have or plan to buy, or any of the many gaming forums, what's an answer
    in 24hshd going to do for you?
