Default 24 inch monitor

I was wondering, if i got a 24 inch monitor, what is the lowest resolution i could run without the picture moving out of place? since i dont think my gfx card could handle the full resolution and i want a bigger monitor.
thanks in advance, lukas.

The resolution isn't tied to the monitor size.... If you want a screen with a low resolution look into "hd" tvs around the 720p mark get one 30" if you like. Its the resolution that gets more information on the screen though I have a 24" at 1900x1200 I will have more screen real estate then a full hd tv 40" at 1900x1080 it just makes the pixels larger they can't display any more info.

Just because you get a 24" screen, doesnt mean you cant run games in a lower res.

They wont look as good as native res though, because less pixels are being displayed on the screen..
theyre just being stretched out to cover the entire area.

No, 1440x900 would be a better choice since its a native widescreen res.

so im right in saying a 24 inch monitor would run games on a resolution of 1280x1024 without anything going missing off the screen? id only run that until i upgrade my gcard.

1440x900 is better because its a widescreen res, 1280x1024 is a 4:3 aspect ratio res so it would look worse.

1680x1050 is the next logical step down on a 24" screen though. I have no idea why you would want to game on 1280x1024. For a 22" screen with a native res of 1680x1050, the next step down is 1440x900.

well i only play cod4 and i play cod4 on medium graphics so i can get 250fps, and if i game on 1680x1050 my fps isnt a steady 250 therefore it doesnt feel/look right to me.

250fps? are you serious?
can you tell a diff between 250 and 75? I bet not very much, if at all. You can crank up the res if you are getting 250fps... you sure about that number?
