I mainly play one game, tf2,on 1024x768 with some okay settings and no antialysing. I get usally get locked at 60 fps, even thought my 2.13ghz + geforce 630 is really crappy. I am really happy with my gaming setup because of how cheap it was. Now I want a new moniotr, this VGA monitor is big and hot and I want a nice slick DVI monitor and its blackfriday/christmas time so I will buy one. The thing is that I want to have my browser and my computer at HD quallity and have tf2 at 1024x768 because with a higher resolution there is more lag. So do I just change my ninvida settings to HD and will my tf2 stay the same?

If it does not stay at the same setting you can go into the options for the game and set the resolution to what you want that should be no problem. So you could have 1080p at the desktop and play the game at a different resolution with no problem. Depending on what your new monitor supports it may not be exactly 1024x768 but you can get close like 720p it just depends on what the monitor allows.
