Ok, I stand corrected.
Here is the list:
Name Resolution Ratio
VGA 640x480 4:3
SVGA 800x600 4:3
XGA 1024x768 4:3
SXGA 1280x1024 5:4 (it's still an abomination...)
UXGA 1600x1200 4:3
WXGA 1366x768 16:9
WSXGA 1680x1050 16:10
WUXGA 1920x1200 16:10
But I did refer to CRT not LCD monitors. Here's mine f.e.
Samsung 957p 352x264mm 4:3
