GTX 600 Series Question - Page 6

post #51 of 59
You asked: If my screen size is 1920x1080 for example, and ingame i play at a lower resolution than that (1680x1050) does it bottleneck or look weird??

LCD Screens only have 1 actual resolution and that resolution is the amount of pixels it has in each direction. So for example a 1920x1080 monitor should have just over 2 million pixels. If you go to a different resolution where those pixels line up wont be in the same exact place vertically and horizontally and they will be larger than your actual pixels this gives an effect I can best describe as a light blur. Then if you select a resolution that is not 16x9 you have another issue!

Also thinking of the whole 16x9 thing if any of those monitors are 16x10 I would go for that because they will handle 16x9 just fine but they will give you a larger screen and more pixels 2,304,000 pixels 1920x1200 vs 2,073,600 1920x1080 so 11% more pixels!

Read your whole explanation, and thank you for spending the time to explain. I think i understood how it works, the basiss.
You meant 120hz @ 1920x1080 or above? (not 60hz). How can i check the refresh rate aswell as the resolution i am running at?

For a 120hz monitor which would be used for 2D fps games @ 120hz, would you think the BenQ XL2420T is a good idea?

The BenQ, although capable of 3D, is really meant for 2D FPS games @ 120hz. That is precisely why we buy these monitors. And yes, the BenQ 2420 is a great monitor for this. My friend has one, and it is absolutely amazing for FPS games.

Okay thanks. My other option would be the Alienware 120hz monitor. I heard it is also a good one. Have you heard anything about it?

I heard 120hz doesn't work on all the resolutions. Some gaming friends of mine said it only works on native resolution, is that true?
post #56 of 59
Native res is the ONLY res you want to use anyways but NO that is probably not true as it is easier for your monitor to driver a higher refresh at lower res BUT who knows.

Doesn't really matter though since you only use the native res anyways.

I would choose out of the 670 FTW, Asus 670 DC2, or the Gigabyte 670, or the MSi 670 PE. All are out standing cards and I dont think anyone can really put one ahead of the others as they all have there perks.

You know, I've never tried below 1080p, just wondering why you would want to drop the res?
