Is 1280x1024 any good for gaming?

I'm so sorry if I noticed no difference going from 1024p to 1080p.

Some people (like me) prefer 60FPS over graphical quality. And when this FPS drop comes with almost no graphical enhancement whatsoever it's a no-brainer. I left behind my 1080p monitor though, and I'm gonna get a 1280 x 1024 cheap monitor.

Am I proud of it? No, why would I be? Am I glad? Hell yes, same graphical quality while boosting my FPS tremendously? Sign me up.


This is exactly what I'm talking about. You proudly assert that you can't tell the difference between a near square and a rectangle. It's just bullheaded idiocy. And you'll try to argue this and proudly assert it over and over.

You're predictable.

I'm just stating how things are, I'm not proud of anything. A blind man obviously can't tell the difference either, would he proudly say "I'm blind so I don't see a difference"? I think not.

I just can't tell the difference between 1024p and 1080p. I noticed... wait for it.... THE BIGGER SCREEN duh, other than that, games looked the same and ran worse.


The blind man would not proudly state anything. For what reason does he have to proudly state on matters that he obviously cannot discern?

You show no humility or reservation in your absurd opinions. It's obvious you take pride in being an ignoramus with no eye for anything.

Muse sounds the same as Sum 41. <<< Your way of stating something absolutely and utterly absurd.

Muse and Sum 41 are both rock and share a lot of elements, so in what I focus on in music, they are kind of similar. <<< the way to not sound like a fool, even if it's still a wrong opinion.

So I should feel sorry for myself because I don't notice a difference between 60 pixels? I can see who's the one trolling here.

640 horizontal pixels and 56 vertical pixels. 640 pixels d00de. Are you just trying to look bad?

That just gives higher FoV. Games look the same, at least here.

1280 x 1024 is much less demanding, and if I see jaggies I can just pop in 4x AA. 1080p is overrated
