New monitor help

I got a new monitor today (todayīs my birthday! )
And I donīt know which resolution give it.
I think the max resolution is 14?? x 9??, itīs a LCD 19" "wide" monitor, but since itīs like that I donīt want the anime to look stretched like wide does on TV >_<
Also itīs bright should I only change brightness, or also contrast.

Assuming neither monitor nor graphics card are broken in weird ways, the monitor should be able to notify the graphics card about its capabilities. Try setting it to the biggest resolution it can do, usually it'll be the native resolution of the monitor.

If you just set your player settings right, nothing will look stretched. Default settings in MPC keeps aspect ratio, which means that 4:3 video will get black bars in the left and right sides, and 16:9 video will usually get slight black bars at the top and bottom. (This is because widescreen PC monitors are usually 16:10 aspect, ie. slightly taller than a regular 16:9 format TV.)

I see, thanks, yet there aren´t black bars to the sides of my non-wide anime, what do I need to do? (I use MPC)

Nevermind, got it to work.
