Larger monitor and fps in games...

Ave all

I'm planning on an upgrade and am looking to get a 19" flatscreen CRT monitor... however, one of my friends has just told me that it will lower my fps in games because the graphics card has to work harder to fill the larger screen...

This is the first I've heard of such a thing, and it doesn't sound right to me... though I have little in-depth knowledge of computer hardware.

Please enlighten me one way or the other.

Your friend assumes you'll run the game at a larger resolution. Thus, lower fps. What is your current res- if 1024x768, the game will look fine on a 19"

you can find the benchmarks for your video card and find out what your fps will be at a higher res

one day, intel'ers will see the errors of there ways...

That's what I thought - I assumed he was getting resolution and size mixed up.

No matter
