lol I remember you.

Now having received my 2048x1536 21" trinitron, I find the image quality ever so slightly blurrier (per pixel) at 2048x1536. But the difference is so tiny that it's not worth the lost desktop space to go 1600x1200. I mean, there's literally almost no difference here.

What's the dot pitch on your monitor? From what I recall, it's 0.22 on this one.

Sorry that I didn't make myself clear. I didn't mean to alter resolution on the same LCD, I always go with native res btw. I'm actually considering 2 monitors, one is 1366x768 and one is 1920x1080. Now for the main purpose of maintaining playable frames per second with my GTX 460, I'd have to either play games maxed out at 1366x768 or with medium to high settings at 1080p. So which setting do you think will bring more eye candy, higher quality graphic overall without sacrificing fps?

Dear god, you are actually considering that?

Go 1920x1080. If you don't, you're nuts. 1366x768 is absolutely horrible for desktop work and browsing, and even gaming (even on high settings). 1920x1080 is the absolute minimum I'd use for anything. Just get the 1920x1080. There's absolutely zero question which is better.


I mean, modern LCD unnative resolution scaling doesn't look THAT bad. If you wanted to run high, unnative resolutions don't look that bad in game. Just that they don't look as good as they would on native.

Just get the 1920x1080. Please. I would not even use my computer for anything but the necessary school work if I had a 1366x768 screen.

I think you should buy 1366*768. biggrin.gif




Just kidding;)
De-Zant knows what he is talking about. (+rep for good post to De-Zant)


To play in 1366*768 on a 1920*1080 monitor actually works ok unless you are picky.
