I'm thinking of getting a new monitor soon and look set to get a TFT monitor to replace my existing 17" CRT. In terms of price and resonable reviews the Acer 1916 looks a decent investment, but I have a few questions about it before going any further. Firstly it describes itself as 19" widescreen model. I've yet to see any widescreen computer monitor and wonder how it compares to a normal 19" screen. What are the benifits of such a design and are there any problems such as being forced to run things in a none widescreen mode (so you'd have a centred display with black space around it). Another question is regarding my current system specs. As things stand my computer is getting a bit outdated internally and only has a GeForce MX 460 graphics card and 512 MB of ram. Are these okay in terms of using the acer monitor? Are there any other system specs that need to be looked at when considering a purchase and what would the effect be if I can use the monitor but not to it's full potential? Finally in regards to cost. The price of the monitor seems pretty low in comparison to other monitors (with it being below £200). I could possible hold off a purchase for a few more weeks. Would the price be expected to drop much further in these few weeks or should a purchase just be made?
