For full HD you want a display that is at least 1920x1080. 1280x720 and 1366x768 are actually lower resolutions than 1280x1024, the big difference is they are in a Widescreen aspect ratio. All of the other resolutions have more pixels than 1280x1024 and will give you a more detailed picture, and sharper picture depending on the size of the display. Avoid getting a display that is too big for a particular resolution. A 27 inch 1920x1080 display won't look good up close as the pixels themselves will be more visible if they have to cover a larger area.
 

They are all 16:9 ratio, the higher amount of pixels there are, the harder of a time your graphics card have. Anything above 1280x720 is HD resolution.
