Hello to you all,
I'm in need of some advice. I want to decide which monitor to buy, 19" at resolution 1440x900 or 20" at resolution 1600x900.

Main goal is to get better playing performance in newest (and some future) games, like GTA IV,pes 2010, dragon age, battlefield bad company 2, upcoming mafia II, etc...

My system build is:

AMD Phenom II 955 BE x4 (quad-core) at 3.2Ghz
XFX Radeon 4870 512mb
4gb ddr II at 800mhz

I'm maxing out all the games on current monitor (1440x900), but I plan to replace it with a new one, so I'm in dilemma: To buy the same sized or larger 20"? Will I get approximately same performances with the higher resolution at 1600x900?

the 4870 is more then enough for a 20" at resolution 1600x900.

FPS would take about a 10% hit from 1440 x 900
