Do I need 1080p? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
You add the pixels. If you're monitors are staying in the "regular position" than you would have 1680+1680+1680 x 1050. If you turn them to be vertical it'd be 1050+1050+1050 x 1680.

It is just ridicolous to buy 1680*1050 when you can get 1920*1080 for the same price.

Obviously thats the way to go. That you have a monitor from the past is not a good argument to buy another monitor from the past.

If you buy a 24" inch screen your 1680*1050 screen will be good to use with it as second monitor.

Yes, I agree.

1680x1050 is the 16:10 version of 1080P..

Your not losing pixels at all, just a different aspect ratio

I downgraded from 1080p to 1680x1050. No regrets. Of course, this monitor is special cause it can do 120Hz.

1680*1050 has alot of fewer pixels than 1920*1080.

1 680 * 1 050 = 1 764 000
1 920 * 1 080 = 2 073 600

2 073 600 - 1 764 000 = 309 600

309600 fewer pixels.

You're thinking of 1920x1200. And even so, 16:10 (with the same horizontal pixel count) is always made up of more pixels than 16:9.

But anyways. The OP should get 3x1680x1050 because that will prove to be much more useful than 2x 1920x1080
Strange comparison.

2x 1920*1080 + 1x 1680*1050 would be much more useful than 3x 1680*1050

No.

If he gets 1x 1920x1080 + 2x 1680x1050, he's not gonna be able to run surround properly. Most likely can't get it to work, and if he can, it will have to be stretched or using black bars on the sides.

If he gets 3x 1680x1050, he can use nVidia surround without any issues most likely. He should get the same model monitors tho. They have to have the same sync polarity tho, so different model monitors not guaranteed to work in surround

People, think. Don't just randomly recommend stuff.

Still wouldnt buy 2 outdated monitors that cant handle 1080p.

It is just a matter of time before he regrets that decision.
