In games, 1080p sees more horizontally and the same amount vertically. That's how games work. It's a resolution scaling method called hor+ (Well used at wide screen gaming forums). It means that every resolution sees the same vertically and wider ratios see more horizontally


For example, if you have a 1200p monitor, decreasing the resolution to 1080p makes you see more. Decreasing to 1920x720 makes you see more. 1920x600 is like having eyefinity but the resolution is so low that it sucks.

The nice side effect from all of this is that 1920x1200 panels have more image clarity than 1080p panels, if we don't take panel quality into consideration.


So in games there isn't a huge minus for either. Both work


1080p is fine. It won't cripple your game in any way. In windows it's fine.
interesting, this is the type of info im looking for.

My point is that 1080p is not too bad. But I'd still prefer 1200p if it is afforable.
