as the title says, i am trying to upgrade my monitor (which is a samsung 23" 1080p VGA only) since i am getting a gtx770 this week using it with this monitor seems a little bit wrong to me, so i am looking for a monitor which is at least 23" in size, and searched for 1440p monitors but they are either too rare or way too expensive here (turkey, they start from 1500$+) the best monitors i have found are 24 and 27" but they are both 1080p so what do you guys think about those?

i also found 1920x1200, but i am not sure that is a good resolution for gaming, is it?

Why do you think your current screen is not good for you GPU?
You can use a DVI to VGA adaptor.

If you really insist buying a new one, then a 27" 1080p is just good enough for gaming.

Your screen resolution wont be changing...just the screen size and DPI accordingly. Personally, I wouldnt upgrade my monitor unless the resolution increased accordingly.

You can move your 23" monitor closer and it will have the same effect as the 27" at a further distance.

well, first of all i am greedy :D  so i want more. so my options are either going for higher res monitor, or multi-monitor setups. i could not find a good, cheap 1440p monitor, so the only option left is multi-monitor which i dont have space and i don't really like multimonitor setups.

the 27" 1080p monitors are from 300-400dollars in turkey, which is obtainable.

and yes my monitor is good enough, i have nothing against that, but as i said, i just want more :(  i have computer that can provide more, i have gpu that can provide more, so why not?

edit: yes i know there wont be any difference on resolution part, the question i meant to ask was dpi. since i havent used any 27" 1080p monitors i cannot decide if dpi is going to be too low

Your GPU upgrade makes NO DIFFERENCE on a 23" 1920x1080 or a 27" 1920x1080. ITS THE SAME RES :o 

You dont want to spend the money on a 1440p display
You dont want to have a multi-monitor set up
You want a larger monitor just cause

Which is cool, your money.
