Hey... got a 21.5 inch monitor at 1920x1080 res...
i was thinking about buying a new monitor
and i thought about a 27 inch one...
i wont do a lot of gaming in it
i just want to know if a 27 inch monitor with max res of 1920x1080 a big no no?
my graphics card is
5770 1gb factory overclocked to 900 mhz
says it could handle res up to 2500x1600...
would i be pushing it too much running a monitor at 2500x1600?

if you're going to run you dekstop at that resolution i don't see any problem with that. but if you want to play game at such resolution your card will struggle if you push the setting to the max

i am getting a bigger monitor because of desktop real estate and MOVIESS...
i like my movies in big monitors but i dont want to buy a tv... i just wanted to stick to computer monitors...
so would 1920x1080 be enough for movies too??
id hate to see the slightest defect on my monitor while watching a movie...

2500x1600 would be fine for desktop applications, or watching some movies. As renz496 stated, you won't be playing games at that resolution with your current video card though.

Also, if you get a 27" 1920x1080 monitor, keep in mind you'll want to sit further away from it. The larger screen, with the same resolution as you have now, simply means the pixels are spread further apart. This means "less detail" up close.

i was thinking about a 2500x1600 resolution...
but they are so dam expensive!!... and so few of them out there....
and 27'' monitors mostly have 1920x1080 max res which is kind of annoying...
maybe i should just go with a 24'' 1900x1200??
im really worried about the spacing between the pixels on a monitor that big with just 1920x1080 res...
