    no you dont need new monitor

    you just need to adjust video setting inside the game to fit your monitor resolution

    most games even automaticly detect it as default
  2. I think most people would prefer at least a 1920 x1080 monitor with >5ms response rate. But it is really up to you.
  3. If you're gaming at 1366x768, I hope you have a good excuse :)

    What kind of gpu do you have in your pc build? If its a decent gpu, maybe consider saving up for a 1080p monitor.

  7. You have a better video card than me and I run 1440p, please for the love of pc gaming upgrade your monitor. Even the ps4 runs games at 1080p now. You deserve it with a PC build like that.
