Does monitor size affect graphic performance?

Specs:
Gigabyte P55A-UD3 Motherboard
Diamond Radeon HD 5770 1GB DDR5
4GB DDR3 RAM

If i ran crysis (or any other PC game) on a 27" (larger monitor) at 1280 x 720 and got 25-35 FPS at High settings, would i get better FPS (or over all experience) if i switched to a 20" (smaller) monitor at the same 1280 x 720 resolution with all settings the high (same) ?

    No. It all depends on resolution, not screen size. If you increase resolution, the number of pixels the graphics card has to draw will increase, which will decrease frames per second. However, if you increase the screen size, nothing changes, according to the computer, as size isn't tied with pixel count.

    Ok, thank you. What does native resolution mean? and the larger the display doesn't mean more physical pixels? or is there no such thing?
  3. There's no way you'll be able to find a 27" 1280x720 display, and you shouldn't want one. Larger displays will usually have more pixels (a higher resolution), but a 27" 1920x1080 display won't have more than a 23" one.
  4. Sorry, I should have specified more, but the 27" is a TV being used as a monitor. But thank you.
  5. If you sit far enough away from the 27-incher, it'll look the same as a 20-incher. Otherwise it'll look bad; the pixels will be annoyingly visible.
  6. Thank you.
