Hi
I just bought a new computer and I upgraded to and bought the 20 inch HD monitor
The ratio is 1600:900 I believe
This is very wide to me... everything seems distorted and stretched... Pictures are stretched and it is hard to see things
Anything I should do about this please?
Thank you

Should I try to exchange it for a new monitor? I was considering this one:

No, I wouldnt. 1600x900 is a standard native resolution for a widescreen monitor. If you do not like how it looks, I would suggest getting a monitor that is not widescreen. Adjusting the resolution on your current monitor will make it look extremely distorted and will probably do more harm then good.

edit: that second monitor doesnt appear to be widescreen by the specs. Go for it.
