  1. 720p obviously looks a bit more blurry than 1080p, because there is less pixels to make the same image.

    How bad will it look, will it be a "oh i can barely notice it' or will it be 'MY EYES O'GOD MY EYES" thing
  3. It depends on you. I can tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, and it's a lot worse when you get to 480p. But I guess 720p is still an acceptable quality.

    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.
  6. Sorry, got a dual post due to a web browser glitch.
  7. i would notice it if i did that. maybe in fast action games you wouldn't notice it so much.

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

    It can run at 1080p just fine I
  11. it will look stretched out. you can see it when you go down from 1080 to 720
