    I bought a bunch of 20"s from Dell but they suck! Check www.newegg.com and put in your resolution and read some of the reviews. I see alot of the cheaper wides droppin pixels so be careful...

    Oh yeah! Sorry guys! I was putting in the new monitor, it`s on one of those wall mounted swing out thingers, then got side tracked organizing the office.

    The bitch of the thing was to run the cables. I have a power cable right beside the monitor bracket, but the VGA and DVI cables were a royal pain in the ass. I think they got caught on the vapor barrier in the wall for a bit, but I got them out in the end. Just finished hammering the baseboard trim back on, looks sweet.

    Yeah, the background image is what I meant! I found a couple, but most of them have freaking copyright watermarks on them. I`ll check out the ones you linked to Sarge! Thanks!

    Google Search Results

    Not much in the way of anything, dude! Sorry!

    Hell, 1400x900 only pulled up 76 images in Flickr...

    Might try resizing an existing one, or even cropping one.
