Would going from 1360x768 to 1080p be worth it? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Insanely huge difference, i bought a monitor for my friend and he agrees that 1080p gaming is a lot better than 720p.

Also, on a side note, your 32" TV probably has a noticeable input lag that can make fast-paced gaming difficult to impossible. Do yourself a favor and pick up a nice 1080p monitor - they are pretty cheap these days.

EDIT: Additionally, daily computer use is also easier as you can display a lot more on the screen (more desktop space, less scrolling on websites, etc).

I currently have the option to get a 21.5" 1080p monitor for a good price. Would you believe that I should go for it?

I would ask you the same question as I replied to the above poster. Should I go for it?

Interesting, you went from a higher resolution than I am on to 1080p and you still claim it was that much better. This is encouraging.

EDIT: Sorry for double post, this reply came up after I replied to the other two.

How much exactly? 21.5" isn't bad but I definitely wouldn't go smaller than that.

60$ plus whatever shipping ends up being. At least it will have excellent pixel density thumb.gif

To answer your question: hell yes it's worth it.

The price seems fair. I'd recommend 23 or 24" if you can afford it but I think you'd be happy with a 21.5" too thumb.gif

Yeah, I know but I think this is a really good deal which is why I was considering it. I'm just a little bit nervous that it will feel small coming from a 32" but then again, I'm only a foot away.

Thank you guys for your help and guidance, I think I will go for it.

if you're gaming yes. if it's just for enjoying videos chances are you won't notice the difference.
in my experience even the difference between 1600x900 to 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 makes for more screen real estate for huds windows etc.
