Hi Guys :) ,

I'm on a really tight budget that i can't afford a 1080p monitor at the moment so i was wondering if playing on a 19 Inches monitor sucks or it is okay..what do u think guys ? :)

Thanks

My Spec. :

Fx 6300 6 cores 3.5 Ghz
Sapphire R9 270x Vapor x
kingston 8gb ram 1600 Mhz

Splendid
Is this a crt or flat screen 19"? Reason I ask is I had a 19" crt that would do 1600x1400.
Flat screens are pretty cheap for a standard 1080p no frills monitor. I got an ASUS 23" for about $170.

You should be fine if you're upgrading from a 15 or 17 inch monitor. I had been using 17 inch lcd 1440*900 until now and only recently upgraded to 19.5 inch 1600*900 because of tight budget and space constraints and while its an ok improvement it would be a better to get a 22 inch 1080p if you can manage the size as they are almost same price as smaller monitors. Also you might want to demo first as 1080p will make text and Windows icons very small which makes reading more difficult but you can adjust it from Windows settings.
