    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1600 x 900 seeing as I'm now pretty much exclusively in-home streaming Steam or Xbox One to my Thinkpad

    Do I want more? Sure I'll take 1080p, 970m, thunderbolt 3, quad core, 14" and a trackpoint. New Razer Blade came so close...

    those monitors are rare and that's a shame

    as soon as 1080 film hit hard, the monitor makers all cut their lcd to fit that and get more from a sheet of screen (or something similar)

    1200 is a GREAT boost I agree. My Dad and a mate both have them but I never did it... and years later I too would be on it still

    I game on 1680 x1050 with a second identical monitor with other stuff running next to it

    But Im so close to buying a 4k tv and using that.......

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    1440×900 seems like a fine resolution to game at. 1366×768 is still fine but I want to have some more of those extra pixels and the picture also looks really sharp. I bought my monitor in 2007 or 2008 I think.

    Re: QOTW: What resolution do you game at?

    The standard 1920x1080p, unless the games too taxing then I'll reduce down to 1440x900 to be safe.

    2048 x 1152.

    This Samsung monitor is the dog's danglies. I love it!

    Tempted by one of those new-fangled DVI jobbies though.

    1920x1200 here too. I game on my HP ZR24w monitor but I still use my trusty Dell 2407 as my second monitor.

    My priority for a my next monitor will be a higher refresh rate first and more pixels second, maybe a 1440p120hz one. I don't plan on switching soon though as I can't justify the money when these monitors are still working great.
