Must be nice to have a widescreen monitor where this stuff is non-intrusive. I have a 4:3 CRT with a whopping 1024x768 resolution.This is the reason I don't get a chance to try these interfaces, cool as they look.

My 24" widescreen Samsung monitor was something like $225 on newegg.com. You can get smaller ones (19" is a decent size) for much cheaper, anywhere from $100-$175 depending on brand/model.I remember my first LCD monitor was a 17" 4:3 shelf model and that ran me $550 (that was probably about 7-8 years ago).

I bought myself a 24" widescreen monitor for Christmas so I know what you mean. I think I paid about $179, it's a Samsung and the picture is amazing. I run dual monitors now and it definitely outshines the old monitor. If you ever get a chance to upgrade (always ask for giftcards for b-days and Christmas) go for it. :D

I too have a non-widescreen moniter, although mine is one step up being an older LCD at 1280x1024. I recently overhauled my UI, and working in the constraints of a non-widescreen was challenging. So, I think I may submit my UI very soon so that other people in the same boat as us can benefit from my work! I know when I go back to playing wow on my widescreen laptop I'll have to redesign my UI again and I'm not looking forward to that. Making a non-widescreen UI is hard!

Well, my problem is I had a debt forgiveness back in 2009 which counts as income. So a lot of my spare income now (including this year's tax refund) goes to pay for that.I did see a good one at Dell which seems to match the requirements for gaming which ran $199. It may be obsolete now.
