Default Smaller monitor, better FPS?

I'm considering buying a new monitor, something in the 21-24" range.

My question/concern is, right now I'm using my 32" offbrand television as a computer monitor. I'm wondering if downgrading to something smaller would increase the performance/FPS of my games. If so, by how much? And would it be worth it? Thank you.

i5 3570k (OC to 4.2 mhz)
Geforce 650 Ti Boost 2gb
16 MB RAM
Windows 7

Depends on resolution.
If that 32" TV is 1080p you'll see no difference if the monitor is also 1080p.

Exactly. Size does not matter as a pixel is a pixel. It is the resolution (number of pixels) that will speed/slow down rendering.

That's a really interesting question, but i'm afraid the mod and the admin above are correct! (Why am I even responding....)

If you're looking for better graphics and all together a better FPS count then use your funds to upgrade your graphics card rather than purchase a smaller monitor; which of course wouldn't improve your graphics capability at all.
