I finally decided to get a desktop after owning only laptops for years. What do you guys think I should get? I've been looking at a 1366x768 screen for a long time so honestly whichever one would work. the 24" is $20 more, not much but I want to be as frugal as possible. I plan on moving soon too, would the 22" be easier to pack and transport than the 24"? Opinions please, thanks.

I'd get the 1920x1080 monitor for the extra $20, unless you really want a 16:10 monitor and/or your desktop will struggle at 1920x1080. Lower resolutions do help with performance so it's sometimes in one's interest to get an "inferior" monitor.

What's the rest of your system like? Is this for gaming?

This. If you have an older PC like me; stick with the smaller resolution.

It's for gaming, and other things lol.
AMD FX-8320 3.5ghz eight-core
AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5
GIGABYTE 970A-DS3P AMD 970 ATX
16gb ram

I'd get the 1920x1080 monitor then. And unless you need the 16 GB of RAM, I might suggest that you only get 8 GB and spend the money on a better video card. The R9 270X is fine but you would get more gaming performance out of a better video card than out of 16 GB of RAM.

Well the thing is I ordered the PC from cyberpowerpc, I know I could've gotten the FX-8350 or the R9 280x but it's way above my budget, what I got is what I can get lol. The 16gb I didn't choose, it was just a Black Friday deal that doubles from the standard 8gb ram to 16gb and 1tb to 2tb HDD. I also decided on the 1680x1050 right away and already placed my order but I'm having second thoughts. Is it justified and should I call and have them change the 22" monitor to the 24" monitor? Or am I just fine with the 22"? As I've said I plan on moving some time in the near future so I went with the 22" right away because I thought I'd be smaller and easier to transport. I've had no experiences with monitors at all as I've just been a noob with a 1366x768 laptop so that's why I thought that.

You're better off going with the 24".

Unless you will really, really be strapped for room where you're moving, there wouldn't be a big difference between a 22" and a 24" monitor. Sure, the 22" is smaller but either way it fits under your arm and you can lift it with one hand if you don't have any disabilities.

They have 22" 1080p monitors.
