OK so these are the 360 games that I own: Lips Guitar Hero World Tour Halo 3 Ninja Gaiden 2 The Orange Box They are all optimised for HD and most importantly, they all use the 16:9 aspect ratio. I am currently using a 17" standard monitor for Xbox 360 gaming. I use a VGA cable, 1280 x 1024 (optimum res) and it looks superb. Everything looks clear and all that but these are the drawbacks: Since I am using the monitor for PC as well, I have to plug and unplug cables, which is a bit of a hassle. Screen is a bit small (I found it too small for Halo 3) In some games i.e. Guitar Hero, I get black bars just to retain the widescreen aspect ratio. Before I used the monitor for my 360, I used a 44" CRT RPTV. I use a RGB SCART cable on it, which is good. Everything's alright as well but here are the drawbacks: 480i and only 480i. Not HD, obviously I think it has overscan so the picture may look to be too big for the screen. I use a 5.1 surround for gaming with the monitor and this telly only has Dolby Virtual. I'm asking you people on which display should I stick with. The 17" one or the 44" one?
