Hello everyone, I am a newbie who just bought the parts to build my PC, now I need a monitor.

I want a pretty small monitor 19inch to 20in would be nice because of space, my gpu resolution is 2500x1600

however I cannot find a small monitor with this resolution, all of them have smaller resolutions not even close

to what my gpu is capable of. So if I purchase a smaller monitor with a lesser resolution will the image quality

be the same as a larger monitor with a larger resolution. I want to get the most out of my games and want a

smaller monitor but don't want to have to sacrifice quality.



here is my gpu: XFX HD-485X-ZNFC Radeon HD 4850

The radeon 4850 would have a real problem keeping up with a 2500x1600 resolution. If you want the best image quality you can get with a 4850, you're going to want to stick with 1680x1050, maybe 1920x1080 since you have the 1gb version. I also have never in my life seen a small monitor with 25x16 resolution- thats crazy high pixel density. The image quality that would be effected by higher resolution is going to end up being similar if you have a smaller monitor with lesser resolution compared to a larger monitor with higher resolution. I would suggest if you are getting a 19-20" display, get a 1680x1050.
