    I feel like I am at a disadvantage with a 19" monitor that supports 4:3 resolution. I mean I can use the 16:9 or 16:10 ratio but the game doesnt fill up the whole screen. Does it really matter or is it time for a new monitor?:mellow:

    OR, should I use my 26" 1080p HDTV as my monitor (it supports 16:9 @ 1920x1080.)

    Decide which one I should play in...

    Heres the 4:3 screen.

    Heres what I'd have to do to play in 16:9.

    I'd get a wide-screen monitor. Only people trapped in the 90's still use fullscreen.

    fullscreen .. bullshit
    correct it to : 4:3 / 5:4 - such as 1280x960 or 1280x1024

    fullscreen is an application mode. It has NOTHING to do with resolution ratio.

    And yes in Dota2 16:9 gives you the most visible area!
    such as 1280x720 and 1920x1080

    A new monitor costs maybe 60 euros for a decent 1920x1080 native resolution

    16:10 does display more pixels then 16:9 but it gives you a smaller fov

    if your video card can handle 1920x1080 resolution, then use your 26" HDTV.
