PC GAMERS: Can You Guys Tell the Difference Between 720p and 1080p

Since you guys have the hardware to run them on both settings at 60 FPS, can you guys tell the difference which is better and why?

1080 has more than twice as many pixels as 720. Can somebody not tell the difference between $50 and $100?

I could tell on my xbox 360. When I got my first 40 inch big screen tv, I had the default settings at 720 which is what my last tv was. I switched from 720p to 1080p just testing it out and didn't notice a difference at first. Things just looked more clear. Then I switched back to 720p and OH MY GOODNESS it was just HIDEOUS! I could tell the difference right away, Everything was stretched and big and just looked unnatural compared to 1080p, and that was just the xbox 360 dashboard.

Then I tested it with Dark Souls lol.

Btw, long time PC gamer. Played WoW beta, and the original Unreal Tournament, warcraft 3, CS 1.6, Guild Wars 2, I'm all over the place. Insurgency is a great FPS btw folks.

This guy clearly disagrees with you.

I will say this, if you are used to 720p and you suddenly switch to 1080p, you probably wouldn't notice. But the moment you go back to 720p from 1080p you'll go "what the ffff... Put it back. RIGHT NOW! PUT IT BACK!!"

Two explanations:

1. TC knows and is only asking to troll and rattle some cages.

2. TC is mathematically impaired.
