should i buy 4:3 ratio lcd monitor for playing csgo and watching 4:3 movie?

The point of 4:3 for csgo is that it’s stretched and gives a weird and debatable “advantage” to have wide pixels to click on. Ideally you want 4:3 resolutions stretched on 16:9 for this.

 

Otherwise, considering that a decent 1600x1200 monitor is dirt cheap at any goodwill or on eBay, might as well just get one for fun.

Just use a normal 16:9 monitor and call it a day you'll just have bars on the side? That eizo is extremely expensive and made for a very particular purpose which is not watching movies.

4:3 ration monitor? In 2021? lol. I wouldn't use that monitor even if someone would give it to me for free.

Yeah sure, if you're stuck in the past with ancient devices then it can be helpful, I guess.

Any modern monitor can display 4:3 resolutions without any issues. If you're on old consoles you're more limited in terms of I/O.

If it's CS:GO it's not that good, but if it was CS 1.6, then yes for sure.

Just get one if you have the space. People often give them out for free or you can get one for as little as $5/$10.

If you want to play on old consoles, then I recommend a CRT TV instead of a 4:3 monitor.

Nopeof you have a old console that only supports 4:3 you just need to play it into the tv, of if it’s old enough and the tv is new enough a vcr and then a tv

No you don't. Tv's understand 4:3 ratio content so do monitors. You don't need a 4:3 monitor to view 4:3 content correctly.
