How much fps would I lose jumping from 900p to 1080p?

Hello everyone,

I am thinking of jumping to 1080p from my 1600*900 monitor. I play Battlefield 4, AC 4 and various other rts and rpg games. Would it be worth it? Will the quality be better? How much fps would I lose?

My build:

i5 4570 cpu
Corsair 8gb 1600mhz memory
MSI r9 270x gaming 2g OC gpu
Asrock B85m mobo
Kingston Now v300 SSD + WD 1 TB
Be Quiet System Power 7 500w psu

I'm on an iiyama 20 inch screen with 2ms response. I can't find it on their website, must be an older model.

Thank you.

  1. You will probably be around 50-55 fps average in multiplayer with the r9 270x at 1080p with custom ultra settings. You won't experience any bottlenecks by cranking it up to 1080p if that's our concern. 1080p is definitelu worth it in my opinion.

    How many fps are you getting now?
  2. Haven't checked but judging that I only notice a slight difference between the best ultra settings inluding 4 x msaa and no aa at all I assume it's well over 60fps at the moment. 50-55 fps is definitely ok for me in 1080p. What screen would you recommend? I don't want to spend more than 100 euro's.
  3. I don't care much about monitors so I'm not the right person to ask that question. Usually I just buy a cheap 1080p @60hz with the lowest latency I can get within my price range. I know there's much more to be considered by a serious gamer but my eye can't catch those things so I usually just go for the two things above and a brand that I trust. Haven't let me down yet an I mostly play first person shooters. Of course a compraision between the monitors you end up having in scope is a good thing to do.
  4. Yeah I figured the same thing. Lately I have been watching videos on BF4 and noticed the image quality is considerably better than mine. I can't pinpoint what it is. Since all my settings are maxed out I figured it must be the resolution. I noticed this with several other games too.

    Well going from 1600x900 to 1920x1080 will improve the image quality without a doubt. It will look much sharper as you will have much more pixels in the image.

    Go with a 1920x1080 60-70 hz 23" monitor with low latency. That's a nice conservative choice that suits the majority of casual gamers.
