Sorry if i'm asking too much.
It sounds like that ASUS one has it actually, though I'm not 100% sure.

Aspect Control function allows users to select a preferred display mode among Full and 4:3 for true-to-life Full HD 1080p gaming or movie watching without any data loss or image distortion.
Though not like it matters for that monitor since the resolution of it already is 1920x1080 aka 1080p aka 16:9.

Finding a 24" LCD (1920x1200, thus 16:10), that has aspect options in your price range probably isn't possible. Same goes with 22" (1680x1050, 16:10) LCDs, though price isn't the issue, its more that it's a very rare thing to find. You basically need to scour the manual and see if it has an option to set the aspect/scaling mode.

I am changing my budget to $350. Know of any monitors that do 1920 x 1200 (16:10) and 1920 x 1080 (16:9)? preferably a 24" monitor.

How about this ASUS Monitor?

Is it good? I know ASUS isn't as popular as LG but the specs are better.

NCIX will price match many items on their website. Once you place an item in the basket you could get the price match thingy where you enter the website link and NCIX will let you know if they will honor the price match.

I think the LG W2353V-PF 23" is a great monitor. It does 1920 x 1080, a 2 ms response time, and 50000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. and for $289 + free shipping, you can't go wrong.

Is this good? or is there something hidden that i am not seeing?

And I think having 2048 x 1152 on a 23" is just pointless. It's far too small of a screen for such a resolution IMO. Only 30" or bigger should run anything beyond 1920x1200.
2048 x 1152 is not that much bigger than 1920 x 1080. I run 1920 x 1200 on my 17 inch laptop and find it provides a lot of real estate for documents especially when you are using adobe programs or the like. And games look great rendered at the higher resolutions. Moreover, I also find the higher resolutions are easier on the eyes. It helps keep your eyes more sharply focused and IMO causes less eye fatigue from the eyes being held slightly out of focus all the time. Windows 7 scales wonderfully at the higher resolutions too. Making fonts and graphics look great! (I have been enjoying Windows 7 RC for the last couple of months now).

Depends what you are looking for but I always think of the best specs for "average" dollars and with enough future proof room to allow for new programs and things that will make the best out of the higher resolutions, thus, increasing the longevity of the product.

Samsung is getting a lot of good reviews these days. Samsung and Philips are the two of the biggest manufactures of LCD panels and most of the other brands buy their panels and add their own processing chips and slap their branded bezel over them. So you can't really go wrong with Samsung!
