Looking for a widescreen PC screen that supports 1:1 pixel scaling i.e supports 4:3 ratios without stretching. Cheap as poss.

All those cheap £150 screens don't tend to support this.

4:3 is standard not widescreen..so a widescreen monitor will never display 4:3 without stretching

Not true. Widescreen monitors can support 4:3 resolutions maintaining aspect ratio (i.e putting boarders on the side instead of stretching) if they have a feature called 1:1 pixel mapping.

This is why LCD HDTV's can do it.

Yeah, but most sub-£300 widescreen monitors do not have this, so any 4:3 resolution just gets stretched. Trying to find a Pc screen, as cheap as possible, that can do it.

My Dell 2005fpw can do it.
The Dell 2007wfp can do it as well.
But not cheap.
