I want to change from my 19" LCD to this 24".click here

My set up is:
ATI Radeon HD 4800 (NoDB whatever that means)
CPU: AMD 7850 2.8 x 2
PSU: Corsair 400W.
I assume my set up can cope, but would just like someone to confirm it please.
Thanks.

Should be fine.

Thanks.
I didn't know what criteria there was for such a monitor.
I want in order to enjoy FS2004 better.
How do web pages appear at the optimum resolution of 1920 x 1080?
Would I have to drag the sides in for them to be in perspective? Rather than adjusting the resolution.

It appears Currys have the wrong specs for that monitor? And it's ~£15 cheaper at click here.

"How do web pages appear at the optimum resolution of 1920 x 1080?

You won't have to make any adjustments, but some sites may look better than others in Full HD resolution - it mostly depends on how each site is coded. You can of course use a smaller browser window if you wish.

"ATI Radeon HD 4800 (NoDB whatever that means)" - btw, that's a fairly good graphics card, even capable of playing most 3D games at decent settings. G

I noticed a huge fps increase in fs9 when I upgraded the PC last year. Couldn't believe what I had been missing.!
You mention HD, but the monitor doesn't have an HDMI socket and I can't see one on the rear of PC.
Anyway it will be another great improvement on this old 19" LCD.
Thanks for link.
I am going to Currys in Bluewater tomorrow ( only 15 mins away) to see if they have it. Very tempting the lower price, but B/Water is handy for taking things back!
Is it still 3 missing pixels that are allowed or are those days gone?

Regarding "dead" pixels it seems to vary by manufacturer

It is OLD advice but I think it still applies

Thanks.
Lastly does the monitor size have any adverse effect on fps.

"You mention HD, but the monitor doesn't have an HDMI socket and I can't see one on the rear of PC."

When I said 'Full HD resolution' I meant the monitor's Full HD 1920x1080 resolution.

"Lastly does the monitor size have any adverse effect on fps."

Yes, fps usually falls with greater resolution, but it doesn't appear to make much difference with FS - see these charts click here. G
