I bothered my parents to buy me a 24" widescreen for christmas (or a split present for christmas / birthday if it's too expensive for them for a single present ...), though, I'm still looking for a good and cheap thingy ... All screens at the local stores are in a 16:9 ratio and on top of that, no screen has a higher resolution than 1920x1080. Well, I'm sure it would need to be a larger screen if I want my 2560x1600 resolution, but the only screen I found in a quick search was too expensive.

Wich in fact means ... I have no clue, what screen to choose. My main purpose will be watching videos or playing one or the other game. I'm only doing simple graphic editing, so color correctness isn't that much important to me. Any suggestions?
