Say I have a monitor set at 2560x1440 resolution, and I replaced it with a different brand lower resolution monitor at 1920x1080, what would happen when it was connected to the PC. What I mean is, the resolution setting would be 1440p, would the new monitor not be displayed since windows has the resolution already set at 1440p.

The computer keeps track of each monitor and it's optimal settings. It knows I have 3 dell monitors and when I turn my receiver on it switches over to my TV.

TLDR..You are fine. Computer smart.
