720p obviously looks a bit more blurry than 1080p, because there is less pixels to make the same image.

Playing at 720p on 1080p capable monitor shouldn't cause any significant blurring of the image. It may appear slightly blurred due to the fact that the pixels displayed on screen do not match up exactly with the actual native resolution of the monitor, however, it won't be severe and you may not even notice it.

if your system isnt powerful enough to run 1080p you might want to run 720p.
