I know you don't want to discuss this, but this is a discussion forum and there seems to be some confusion.
The "standard" aspect ratio for CRT monitors is 4:3. The "standard" aspect ratio for LCD monitors is a more "square" 5:4.
The usual 4:3 aspect ratios are 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x960 and 1600x1200.
The only commonly used 5:4 aspect ratio I know of is 1280x1024. This is the standard resolution for 17" and 19" LCD monitors.
The larger LCD screens (20" and above) tend to revert to the 4:3 aspect ratio to accommodate a native resolution of 1600x1200.
If you display a 4:3 resoultion (such as 1024x78) on an LCD screen it will appear "stretched" in the vertical dimension.
Most digital cameras produce photos in a 4:3 ratio. The exception is digital SLRs which tend to produce photos in an even wider format of 2:1. That is why digital photos displayed on an LCD monitor have a black border top and bottom whereas on a CRT monitor they are displayed full screen.
