Usually use my tv, but I have a 1280x1024 at my desk and was wondering if that's any good for gaming.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

It's not that it's necessarily "bad".....you could just do much better. You could upgrade to 1680x1050 or 1920x1080 for relatively cheap.

I'd still use it if I were you, at least until I buy a 1080p monitor. It would feel kind of weird as your field of view isn't as wide as the 16:9 or 16:10 monitors.
