Aiming for a 24" display widescreen
whats your opinion?
I just downgraded back to my 20 inch 1440x900 monitor. I have a pretty good rig (Geforce 8800, 3 Gigs RAM, AMD Dual 5600+)
I was having trouble running games that looked good with that high of a resolution. If I downgraded the bigger monitor to a smaller resolution it didn't look as good as the smaller monitor running in that resolution.
That's just my two cents... but if you can run all the games smoothly in that high of a resolution, go for it man!
Most video cards support up to 2560x1600; however its more taxing on a system to display graphics at 1920x1080 compared to 1440x900 and while you may get 50 FPS on 1440x900 you may only get 35 on 1920.
About to upgrade to a 23" LG Monitor and a GTX280 from a 19" HannsG and a 8800GTS G92 (Will become a Physx Card)
I think I have decided!! DUN DUN DUHHHH!!! @_@
I will probably end up going with the 1920 X 1080 24"
-Cheaper for me
-I'm a big FPS fan so I enjoy the slight increase in width for peripheral vision over vertical sight.
-will work with most modern media
-can use it with my consoles nicely if I want^^
not against 1920X1200, 1080 just suits my needs a bit better.
I would have gone the other way around if I were hardcore into RTS games and the like.
Screen resolution isn't much of a problem with modern graphics cards. The only issues you're likely to see is with very intensive full screen effects like motion blur.
I prefer 16:10 (1920x1200) for a computer monitor: it offers more vertical space documents. Gaming is great at 16:9 (1920x1080), but if you're on PC and have a 16:10 monitor you might as well use all the pixels your monitor has.
