    I am looking to upgrade my monitor for my gaming PC.

    My current monitor is 19″ and has a 1440×900 resolution.

    The one I am thinking of getting is 24″ and has a 1920×1080 resolution.

    My graphics card is a GTX 660.

     

    I have run a benchmark using my current monitor and a 1920×1080 TV to test the frame rate difference between the two resolutions, the results were;

     

    Current Monitor (1440×900), average FPS = 43.4

    TV with same resolution as new monitor, average FPS = 29.7

     

    That’s quite a difference and will probably be the difference between running new games well on Ultra settings and not.

     

    I am now not sure whether to upgrade because it sort of defeats the point of getting the new monitor for games to look better, if the FPS’s are so low that I have to turn the graphics down to run them.

     

    What do you think I should do?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    i will buy the bigger monitor and make graphics lower .. yeah i do love game graphic settings on the highest so game looks awesome , but big screen is awesome and its one of things i cant play without … also big screen is good to for movies also cut scenes … well my opinion is to buy screen , i know 50 fps is awesome but i think 20 is still enough to get good experience from the game , also when u set graphic lower it gonna be perfect <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

    Thanks Taylor.

    I do agree with you about everything there but 25 is really noticeable to me and gets a bit annoying <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/sad.png" alt=":(” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>
