If your 4:3 monitor actually is exactly 19" diagonal, then the screen height is 11.4183" (not the 12" you mentioned).

If you want the same screen height with a 16:9 monitor, it would have to be 23.3124" diagonal.

If you get a 23" 16:9 monitor, its height will be 11.2659"
If you get a 24" 16:9 monitor, its height will be 11.7557"
