Ok, hopefully I can iterate this in an understaning fashion. I play BF3, WoW, GW2, The Witcher 2 etc. I can currenly all of these games on Max settings and get desirable FPS (60+) with no real latency or graphical issue. I'm also using 5+ year old 19" Dell flatscreen monitor, sorry not sure the resolution, I'm at work at the moment ( 1280X1024 maybe?). My question is, if I buy a new monitor, something along the lines of; http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=3706239&t... what can I expect graphics wise? Is there a chance I actually LOSE performance/FPS when playing at 1920x1080 on a full 1080p monitor? Thanks in advance all.

Specs:

CPU- i5-2310 2.9 quad
GPU- MSI 660ti PE
RAM- 8 Gb

I want to upgrade my monitor, but am cautious now after reading. I haven't been able to find a concrete answer on this. Thanks again for your help. Any additional thoughts on the monitor? Trying to stay at 200$ max.

Lol - maybe an "understandable fashion" would be better. Come on, man - it spell checks for you as you type!

Anyways - no, you will not lose performance in a noticeable way (Avg 80fps @ 1280x1024 drop to 60fps @ 1080p). In those games you'll still be hitting 60fps with no problem. Turn on Adaptive Vsync in the Nvidia driver, and you're golden.

Lol. First, thanks for your info, I'm very happy to hear that. Secondly, I am at work and was typing quickly, and on my broswer it does NOT spell check as I type lol. Grammatically correct would have been understandable, but I meant to typing understanding fashion. Regardless of my poor grammer, thank you.

I would not purchase at best buy I would order online. I feel the price of that monitor is probably above where it needs to be in terms of a monitor. That monitor is 174 dollars on newegg with a rebate bringing it down to 150 and with free shipping.

No problem - no offense. I have to use IE8 at work and I hate it.

No worries. Is IPS the way to go for gaming monitors? I'm liking the price point and specs of the Asus linked above http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VS239H-P-23-Inch-Full-HD-Mon.... I'd really like something 23/24" and right around $200. Just want the best bang for my buck. Plan on using an HDMI connection as well.

That isn't a bad monitor that you linked It has a glossy finish. I have this one. I like it because I can pivot, rotate, and heigh adjust (which comes in handy because with most monitors you end up sometimes having your monitor at a height you don't like.)

I would go with a IPS screen yea I mean if you wanted to you could go with a 120hz monitor which is still a TN panel + the plus part. If you went with one of those I would go with this one. Which is crazy expensive. Comes with the glasses though for 3D.
