I am sure this has been asked before, but I can't find an answer to this anywhere. I have been reading a lot about widescreen gaming on this forum for a long time now and I am Intrigued. I currently own a Viewsonic VP171S TFT (1280x1024). 16 ms response time. My questions are, would I gain or lose any FPS by going to higher resolution?, I have read somewhere that the higher the resolution the cpu doesn't have to work so hard and the gfx card does most of the work?. I have an Intel prescott CPU (3.2) 2gb of ram and a 7800GTX 256mb. I am also considering this upgrade when Vista finally arrives and will use this new monitor for when I build my new P.C. The monitors I am thinking of are the Viewsonic VX2025WM, NEC LCD20WGX2 and the Dell 2007WFP (any suggestions to which one I should consider) Thanks In advance. Edit: I have just spotted the VIewsonic VX2235WM That looks very nice.
