good resolution on 19'' monitor?

i was reading another thread and someone said 720p is at resolution 1280x768. would that be a good resolution to play on a 19'' digital flat screen lcd monitor? or should i play at 1152x864 and what is that equal to? thanks for any responses/info

  1. If it's a widescreen monitor then you should play at 1440x900, unless you have a weak graphics card that can't deliver enough frames at that resolution.

    If it's not widescreen then the best you can get is usually 1280x1024.

    "equal to"??? Do you mean, as in TV specs? TVs support 720p (1366x768) or 1080p (1920x1080). There's no special name for 1440x900 or for 1280x1024 AFAIK.
  2. ok thanks and ill have dual nvidia 9800gt in sli
  3. Well the Acer 19in lcd i just bought on the Egg has a native res of 1680x1050! Check it out its on there now.

    I was going to recommend that one myself. My friend got one and it's amazing even when compared to my 19" CRT.

    Yeah, that's the one :P.......and yes, the high res makes it look really good, although it scales down quite nicely for games like Crysis :D

    It look's amazing1 And i paid 200$ for it a while back! If you look at the spec's you will notice it has a higher amount of colors too. Ive had no dead pixles on mine so im very happy with it recomend it to anyone!
  8. so the 19" is big enough to display 1440x900? i was stuck between a 20" and the 19". the 20 had webcam and mic but i dont need those.

    Wrong it does not scale down for crysis or anyother game i play!
  10. Sweet, 1680x1050 on 19" means really small pixels, very sharp images. But you need very good eyes, I guess.
  11. ... sli 9800 gt's at such a low resolution... what an incredible waste of money... get a single 4850 or 4870... save money and have better performance

    Hmmm...well, on my friend's comp it scales down to 1440 x 900 (using an 8800 GTS 512) just fine, so I'm not sure why it doesn't do so good on yours.
  13. I think that he means that he doesn't run Crysis at a lower resolution (so there is no need to scale)
