27 Inch 1080p Good Enough? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
27" at 1080p is OK but it is a very low pixel density. With that being said if you get a 60hz panel you can always downsample to make up for the low pixel pitch. Getting to 1440p is quite easy if you are using an nvidia card and although it wont be 1440p native it will still look a lot better in games. Also if you increase the GUI options of the desktop then you could use 1440p for windows use. You will just have a slight blur which can be compensated if the monitor has an OSD with a sharpness setting(which will in a sense overdrive the pixel change rate).

I have been doing this for years at my office. They only have 24" 1080p panels for us and i get myself a good deal more screen real estate by downsampling to 1440p and then cranking up the sharpness. Sure native would look betting but you use what you got. thumb.gif

Sigh. I guess I'm going to go with 23-24. The whole reason I'm getting the 7990 is to max out games and get the 'wow' factor. I don't want to do anything to compromise that. With that in mind, I'm used to 'almost' maxing out games like bf3 and black ops on my 1366x768 15.6 inch laptop. Due to scree size, will the 15.6 inch 768 look the same as a 24" 1080? Also, which would be a better gaming experience? The comfort of a large screen with worse pixel size or a smaller screen with better ppi. Will ppi be a huge issue transferring from a 15.6 inch 768p to a 27" 1080p? Or will the sheer screen size be more important for me to enjoy the game more?

Thanks all for the assist.

15.6" 768 actually looks pretty bad IMHO (though my dv6 is really 16"). 24" 1080p looks alot better.
Also, since you can't go 1440p, you MUST get a 120hz monitor as a bare minimum, preferably 120hz+ lightboost (there's software that makes it work on AMD).

In my opinion, my 7950 is almost overkill for my 1440p/110hz monitor. Pairing a 7990 with a 60hz 1080p TN screen would be criminal.

A 7990 will be a waste for 1080p. You will be maxing most games and your GPU wont even be utilized fully. I would go with the Korean 1440p OCable monitors. Was there a reason you didnt want to go with the Koreans?

27" 1080p is nowhere near "awful" or "hideous". People exaggerate a bit here, being that this is an enthusiast forum and all. Since Korean monitors aren't really an option for you I would suggest you take full advantage of the 7990 as best you can, and go for a 120hz monitor, either 23-24" or 27".

I doubt the 7950 can max out crysis 3 on 1440p. I'm set on 7990, so no questions there.

calculate it yourself smile.gif

Pixels Per Inch are lower on a 27 inch (at same resolutions). So pixel density is not equal

Maximum picture quality isn't the same thing as maxing. If I had to choose between my old 6850 CF setup and my old monitor, I'd easily take the older cards... Running 2X or SMAA + a few reduced settings barely effects quality at all, but jumping down from 1440p 110hz is like night and day.

Not saying you shouldn't get a 7990, I'm just saying you should pair it with a worthy screen.
