A New Resolution In Gaming

A gaming computer is a computer that is specially designed for digitally demanding computer games. As video games are a rave among all generations of people world over PC manufacturers have started finding new ways of getting gamers hooked to games. Image resolution means the detail an image holds which can be anything like digital or film images. In higher resolution you get more image detail. Just like in main stream computers, gaming computers also have their hardware components attached to the mother board. The addition that they come with is a performance oriented video card.Gaming computers are generally custom assembled rather than pre-assembled because of huge number of parts that can fit in the computer.

 Should we really buy a higher resolution monitor? If so why?

When playing at lower resolutions the objects become larger and you lose the detail aspects when it comes to visuals.With higher resolutions like 1080p+ the detail is clearer.

Resolution is more about sharpness/clarity of the picture. The higher the resolution is, the lesser frames per second. So if the resolution is too high and your GPU (video card) cannot handle the graphics you will have low frames per second (fps) putting aside the whole purpose of having a high refresh rate.

The most popular resolutions in gaming monitors are

1920 x 1080 (HD)

2560 x 1440 (QHD)

3840 x 2400 (4K)

And its ultra-widescreen (21:9) versions:

2560 x 1080

3440 x 1440

Resolution is the measure of the amount of pixels in length and height that a display uses. The higher the resolution the more pixels a display has. A monitor with a lot of pixels for its size will produce a sharper seamless display, this is called pixel density.

Another aspect to be considered is that higher resolutions require more graphical power to back it. So it is better to pick a monitor that has a resolution your computer can configure to.

If you want a budget monitor, any 1080p 60Hz monitor will be fine. If you’re willing to splurge a little, 1440p is the way to go. Alternatively, you can have a multiple monitor setup.There are also 120Hz monitors in the market which have twice the framerate of regular monitors, giving a much smoother play. You can choose one according to system configuration capacity.
