i am looking at tft monitors and have one question a 17inch tft runs best at 1280x1024
but what about games it is rare i can run games that high they say you lose picture quality on lower settings does that apply to games if i run a game at 800 or 1024 will they be affected

games can run at lower resolutions because it is only text that really needs the native resolution to fit the pixels. As a game is a fast moving thing it doesnt look any different :-) I have a 17" TFT but run all my games at 1024x768.

i have a 15" TFT and when i play Microsoft Train Sim it is much better at a higher resolution than my normal 800*600, ask at PC World for a NO OBLIGATION example of a game playing.

1024*768 is a good resolution for gaming but on my 15" it would be a tad small for office work.

good luck
