Resolution differences

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going to be coming from the monitor and screen on the Gateway Profile 5 and the Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024, respectively, to a 1200p Dell UltraSharp U2412M. How much of a difference do you think I would see in gaming? I will be playing BF3 (not competitively), DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Skyrim, and Ultimate Battle 22. Thanks.

You will see the biggest difference if you are a image or video editor. For gaming most people go with the 120Hz monitors

Well, the rule of thumb is and has always been the higher the resolution , the sharper the image. Any advantage in gameplay (if any) would come from increasing pixel density of smaller, distant objects (i.e. players).
