1600x900 monitor vs 1920x1080 monitor.

Should I go with 20 inch 1600x900 monitor or 21.5 inch 1920x1080 monitor?
I have a tight budget which is 125 Us Dollar.
I will use this monitor for gaming and office work.
My current monitor is 17 inch 1280x1024.

  1. 1080 one only cost a little more. a 23 inch can be had for $130 when on sale. try the asus ones
  2. Best answer
  3. You'll miss those vertical pixels when working, and probably when gaming, too (less vertical pixels means more aliasing). Go for a nice 1080p IPS monitor. The ASUS suggested above has much better response time over the LG.
  4. I had a 1080p monitor and I added a 900p one, for fun. I hated the 900p cuz the difference was incredible. I sold the 900p and got another 1080p and never looked back. Lesson learned. Never choose 900p for gaming. You'll find out why quickly.
  5. I have a HD 7770.
    I guess stretching a little bit more money for 1080P is worth it.
    And I will be upgrading the graphics card in the future.

    Yeah, definitely grab a 1080p display, then!

    That's an excellent choice. Good response time and an IPS panel - you won't be disappointed. Have fun with your new monitor! :)

    I will get the 1080P as it looks much more future proof for gaming and office work.
