If I had a desk setup I would get the highest resolution display I could afford, it really matters when sitting close. However, as I'm a lazy couch potato, the PC is hooked up to our 1080p TV. It's been a great experience. Movies, gaming and scaled internet browsing has all been flawless. As we are about 7-8 foot from the TV it looks great too. Sharp, fluid and colourful. Also thankful that I seem to have no issues with input latency from my Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard.

In short, if your'e going to be up close and personal to the display, get the highest quality, highest resolution you can afford and also run well with your hardware.

i'm only a foot away from my 46" and have no trouble at all with it - just had to adjust the sharpness setting ever so slightly. other TV's in the house look nowhere near as good up this close, despite being the same resolution and smaller.

These days 1920x1080 has more or less been relegated to the budget category (for monitors). With 1440 and 2160 becoming cheaper, there really isn't a reason to buy 1080 anymore in my opinion.

there is one big reason not to go 2160 and that running your games without needing a real expensive video card.

Had similar just yesterday with my brother - he saw my i7 laptop and was all 'meh, 1366x768'

Thing is, that laptop in benchmarks at 768p comes out at higher FPS than my i5/550Ti secondary desktop with its native res of 1080p.
broken record but... screen quality matters more than resolution, size, or refresh rate!


I'm posting a lot in this thread so apologies if i feel like i'm replying to EVERYONE :p

Hey WhiteLotus, here are the results of the 2008 and 2011 resolution questions. You can add them to the first post (If you want) so people can see the changes over time.

2008 - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/what-resolution-do-you-game-at.63265/
2011 - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/what-resolution-do-you-game-at-2011.141099/

That is a nice change. I wasn't around TPU in '08, and in '11 I voted for 1920x1080.

Also glancing through the first few pages of that '08 thread, there are lots of unfamiliar names, guys that have since disappeared from TPU.

Yeh, fair point. When I'm relegated to the floor because the GF and dogs get priority (I'm such a little bitch lol) the screen still looks good and I'm 2 foot closer. Interesting to mention that DSR when done right can look incredible as well if you have the grunt to run the higher resolutions.

The thing with that though is that you can just run it at a lower resolution for games that can't handle it. You're not going to lose out on the non-native resolution issue if it's exactly 4:1 pixels.

I have a vested interest in this thread to see which are the most popular resolutions for my game benchmarks. Looks like so far I guessed right, missing the ball on 1200p it seems though. Do people on 1200p care about their resolution's inclusion in benchmark charts? Or do you just reference figures between 1440 and 1080?

TV looks much better than monitor, all games, movies, colours.
i would not mind 2560x1080 i like widescreen.
op higher resolution needs better more expensive hardware to run. keep that in mind.

I think it's interesting that the number one monitor size (1080p) I cited in use by Steam users matches TPU's poll almost exactly, 33.3%! Obviously here the higher resolutions though have a much larger representation than the general public though.

Which is why after the latest patch I run WoW on my 1280x1024 monitor. Not that it matters much though, I had to overclock the GPU to get it to run even close to what it used to at 1680x1050... But I digress.

For 1080p I want around 24 inches. Those 21.5 inchers are to small imo.

1080 - 27". Awesome. Get one with a strobing backlight too, you won't regret it.

EDIT: 4K will leave this standing of course. NVIDIA's new DSR feature allows me to simulate what a 4K desktop would look like using my monitor and I can see that the improvement would be fantastic. Tiny icons and text and acres and acres of space.

For gaming, it actually looks worse than just using AA and really hits the framerate much more than AA.

HA! not a chance in hell that's going happen, 1080 will stay for many years to come.

You seem proud/happy that 1080p will stay on, I don't know why.

I'd rather recommend people go forward with new purchases at larger/better resolutions and not stay in the past.

1440p is great to game on, and once I can afford 4k I bet it will be even better.

I have a 27" 1440p PLS monitor and I am very happy with it. I sit about two feet away from it and I notice a big difference from the 27" 1080p monitor that I had before. I plan to upgrade to a 4K monitor when I can run most games on ultra w/o AA using one GPU. I certainly am not suffering with the monitor I have now even if it takes 3 or 4 years for such a card to come around.

You seem proud/happy that 1080p will stay on, I don't know why.

I'd rather recommend people go forward with new purchases at larger/better resolutions and not stay in the past.

1440p is great to game on, and once I can afford 4k I bet it will be even better.

Nah, I don't think he's HAPPY or proud about it. He's a REALIST. He's just relaying that it is an impossibility for the shift to the majority standard not being 1920 x 1080 to happen quickly like that. Take a look at the figures I posted from Steam on page 1. The sheer percentages make that impossible.

Now, you might WANT that to happen, and in fact I think that's a good thing, and I would like to see it happen too, but I also just have to say, "It's not going to happen by a year from now." Realistically? 5 years or more.

Who wants to ride a train that is almost at the end of the line, when there another one that is going further?

No one WANTS to. Hilux said he predicts the majority change WILL happen in a year. Not a chance. A) Majority of consumers stay with what they have for long periods (reference Steam user hardware database) and always have, and B) the economy is still not that great, with good incomes more scarce on this side of the recovery than before the recession. Therefore, people are more prudent with their funds.

And so far, what I'm seeing on this tech site, is a HIGHER percentage of people still using their 1920 x 1080p monitors (36.6%) than in the general public. Could it be there is nothing actually WRONG with 1080p? :cool:

The average consumer who is more concerned about best bang for the buck vs Maximum Pixel density, Monitor Frequency, and Panel type.
