It wouldn't be pointless. All OP would have to do is use some heavy MSAA or if practical for the situation, SSAA, and OP would be fine even with a lower resolution monitor. That's not to say that a higher resolution monitor wouldn't be more preferable, but it wouldn't be pointless even with OP's current monitor.
