Native 1080 vs lesser native resolutions

A lot more detail for games that force widescreen at least.

there is a difference between real estate and detail guys

You're right. If anything, moving to a higher (native) resolution will decrease detail, if your card can't handle it and you have to adjust settings. Otherwise, it's really just a matter of how big the screen is to begin with, pixel size, and all that jazz.

People move to 1080p because of the real estate.

Thanks. I'm tempted to say I should have bought a monitor w/out widescreen and never had to worry on achieving 60+ constant fps for all games but taking back a 1080p+ ips is hard to do.

it's only an extra 56 pixels of detail, the big gain from widescreen is not having your picture cut off on the sides

56? *chuckles*
