With a smaller monitor I don't need to push it anywhere, it just appears right to me. Before this 24inch monitor I'm using right now I was playing on a 20inch monitor and it felt a bit on the smaller side. So I bought a 24inch based off of video reviews not realizing actually how big it is. I tried to get used to it for more than a year...then I visited my cousin who has a 22inch non gaming monitor and immediately realized that's the perfect size for me.
So now I'm searching something between 22 and 23inch, but is hard to find small monitors for competitive gaming.
