So most TVs are 16:9, is that what you're saying? And that the 1200 is different? ?

I agree with Quality...1920x1080 is what I would do. But me personally.... I would go for another 4K screen.

1200 is more pixels but the ratio would not be compatible with most media. Keep it simple and go 1080.

he's referring to aspect ratio like 16:9 or 1.78:1
we're used to watching movies with black bars on the top and bottom and with a certain aspect ratio but people change it up sometimes and release movies in different aspect ratios.

As far as monitor generally downscaling losing quality so if you have a 1920x1200 and you set it to display at 1920x1080 to match a video it wont be quite as nice as a monitor with native 1920x1080 display

Never watched a movie on mine (use the TV in same room) but yeah for doing that, native HD is nice.

Link us to the monitor please? There's some good and bad brands out there and such. And to me the panel type is important.

Bro, let me just save you some steps and tell you this monitor rocks. It's a 24" with an IPS panel and plenty of connection choices. I was blown away by the brightness and color when I got it. It has a micro bezel as well, pretty much invisible. This is it on ebay, but it's the official Dell store.

I could get a pre own for less than a thrid, 1/3 of that. No offense, but I'd rather let you drive it off the lot.

You get what you pay for. You mentioned an RCA before. If you trust that brand go for it. They are not known to make quality, well, not since the 1950s.

Maybe it would be easier for us to help you if you tell us how much you're willing to spend on your computer parts. How I can advise you is by saying when buying computer part, do not go cheap. They will not last long, or they will bottleneck (Slow performance).

Bottleneck means to operate slowly? Can a monitor bottleneck?
