Which would you buy if you didn't already have a monitor?
A couple 32" or 34" 4k monitors is what I'd buy. At that size, 16:9 or 16:10 doesn't really matter much. Just not those superwide 21:9 ones. At 24" 16:10 (your 1200p) is what I'd lean towards.

You're not answering my question. Which(monitor 1920x1080 or 1920x1200) would you purchase if they were the same price, and why? I purchased an i7 a few days ago.

Most monitors support HDMI, but you can check before you buy. Yes, you want 1920x1080, that is full HD.

Buy a good brand and a good panel. Gamers usually buy TN panels because they have the fastest response time. But viewing angles and color are lacking. IPS panels are brighter and have better color reproduction as well as viewing angles. Then there is the VA panel. Samsung makes IPS but they provide the panels to other makers, for example my Dell monitor is IPS. The blue glow they talk about is not anything to worry about, at least on mine. Here's some reading:

For a TV yes, that would be appropriate. For a computer more real estate can be good for editors. For example an HD movie could fill the screen horizontally and you'd still have real estate at the bottom if you needed it for footage, or a menu, or graph, etc.

You're saying that 1920x1080 is better for video editing than 1920x1200?

You are going to get varying opinions, just buy what you need. And if you are new to editing, you do not need much more than a good monitor. Read reviews, and pick one. When you are learning to drive you don't need a Ferrari.

lol, thanks. Ill just pick the 1920x1200 monitor. But I will need help with the gpu. I dont want my system crashing like Quality mentioned(thanks Quality for mentioning that), due to lack of gpu power either. My system requirement for the software states : Nvidia GeForce 6 series or higher with Cuda(not sure what that means).

Why get a 1200p monitor when true HD is 1080p? Your ration will also be off.
