Every monitor has its own native resolution. You wont see pixels anyway coz they are very small. For gaming, the lower the response time the better.

TN panels - have something around 5ms-6ms and 2ms (G2G).

IPS and VA panels have more response times something around 25ms.

I would recommend a 24" screen. I have tried a 27" 1920x1200, a 22" 1680x1050 and a 24" 1920x1080 and the 24" is the size to go for! A 26" would be okay but you may be at the maximum size limit if you want to be sitting close (monitor distance) to it!

I can highly recommend http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-P2450H-24-inch-Widescre... this screen to you as it is incredible for the price and its colour reproduction is among the best you can get out of a TN panel (which would constitute the majority of all affordable monitors)

It is a combination of just being a bit too big to sit close to (with no extra gain in resolution over the 24" screens), and also the cost of a decent 27" screen is quite a bit higher than 24" - as that seems to be one of the more common sizes available! There is nothing wrong with it if you decide to get a monitor that large as you will get used to the size but a 24" is simply more comfortable to use.

That would be good idea!

Which country you are from? If you are going for a 27 inch you can try something from Dell. Check their website.

The iMac's 27 inch screen is a totally different monster from normal 27 inch monitors.

The normal ones are all 1080P, a low resolution for the size, the iMac on the other-hand, has a 2560*1440 IPS screen, which has almost twice the amount of pixels. Unless you buy a Dell U2711 or the HP Pro monitors that costs ~$1000, you wont be getting the same thing.

You'd be better off going to a place that sells TVs.

place that sells tv are the same that sells monitors and sell all kind of electronics :p ...

I've got a 32in 720p HDTV on my computer, seeing pixels isn't a problem until your so close to the screen your turning your head to see everything.

all this is great but you need to future-proof it, get a 24" with 2ms and 120hz! (3d compatable) you wouldn't want to pay that kind of money on a thing like that to find out 2 or 3 months down the road it wouln't work with the newest most popular game of its time cause its 3d!

it isnt necesary to play 3d.. i prefer eyefinity
