I still have a 5:4 monitor in use (LG Flatron L1710M), I don't really notice the black bars in horizontal games once I'm playing, the bars are less than 1 centimetre on both top and bottom. I keep the aspect the same in MAME's config so a regular 4:3 game is always stretched to 4:3 (in this case it would stretch to 1280x960 letterboxed rather than the full 1280x1024).
