i already use a widescreen hd tv for a monitor and it works great but i found that older games look bad on it. i'm thinking about getting a square monitor to use alongside my hdtv. thinking about spending in the $50-$200 range.
what kind of specs should i be looking for? aspect ratio etc? i'm not very knowledgeable about displays
You can either buy something new in the 17"-19" range that will be overpriced, or look for a used monitor on Craigslist or eBay. You'll probably want something with a resolution of 1024x768, 1280x1024 or 1600x1200. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009477
