The poll just proves that people will vote for the resolution that they use. That's pretty much how any poll about any hardware will go, people will recommend and vote for what they know and use.
I mean just look at the 2560x1440 votes. Please explain to me how that is in any way inferior of a resolution compared to 1920x1080.

1920x1080 give the average joe a more fluid gameexperience. Most people cant afford a new High end PC every year.

You don't need a high end PC to play at 2560x1440. A GTX 470, 460 SLI, 560Ti, or HD5870, 6870, 7850 (or higher) can all offer a perfectly fine and fluid experience at a high resolution like that, without much if any sacrifice in detail.

You're just grasping at straws.

Isn't that like saying that they prefer the resolution because higher ones cost more? It's not really about the resolution itself. Besides most OCNers can run 2560x1440 more than well enough. Usually you need lesser amounts of AA on higher resolutions as well, making it even easier to run.

At time when crysis was released you wouldn't have had most people saying that 1366x768 is the best even though most people were having problems running games at high resolutions and maxed out settings because graphics hardware was comparatively weak.

Since almost everyone uses an LCD the obvious answer is the native resolution of your LCD, since otherwise things will look a little blurry.

A much better question to have asked is what aspect ratio do you prefer gaming at.

1920x1080 simply because it gives me the perfect balance between good fps and quality
post #46 of 90
Lol mods being a bit aggressive this week, must be a blue moon or something. Size of room and budget are likely many of the people, such as myselfs reason for using 1080p. You certainly should not take that as being better than other resolutions and aspect ratios. I

Sorry, Last blue moon was August 31 of this year. :\

Once upon a time I wanted to take a 17" 1366x768 monitor because my 5670 could only power that much, but then a friend slapped sense into me for taking 1080p and I landed up with 560Ti in SLI

Pardon my language but why is everyone in this thread retarded for aspect ratios, and anybody who doesn't agree with a posters opinion has a mental deficiency or is an old coot?
You guys attack each other left and right for silly reasons, it is comparable to the rabid Mech Keyboard guys and the apple v samsung crowd.
I recommend having a sticky for the difference between the resolutions and aspects ratios with lots of big shiny graphical examples.

I game on a 27'' Samsung at 1920X1080 but i want to move up to 2560X1600 for sure since i do have a high end system.
