i currently have a 19 inch ws moniter and have got a new montor coming a 24 inch . i was wondering what kind of performance hit i will take with the higher resolution since i would be going from 1440 x 900 to 1920 x 1020 .thanks
Your graphics card will determine any degradation in 'performance'. At least as long as you purchased a similar or better quality monitor than the one you are moving from.
well i changed it from a grforce 8600 to a 9800 gtx .
The performance hit will be fairly significant. I'm just making this number up from experience, but don't be surprised if you lose 30% performance in a number of games. Of course, like the last poster, I agree that your video card is going to play a very important role.
I have a 1920 * 1200 screen and in It does take a very powerful graphics card or 2 medium cards on sli to run most games at high detail and full resolution. I"m using 2 9800gtx+ 1gb cards and I can max everything and get 60 fps. (halo gets 30). With only one of those cards turned on, I can only get about 40 fps, dipping into 20 at times.
