    Are you asking if a lower resolution setting would look weird on a higher resolution screen?

    If so, yes. It'd look like CRAP.

    OK thats what i thought, And full 1080p on a 23" might be a bit much.

    You computer can handle it can't it? Bigger screen = more screen real estate. Always important.

    It has 2 ports for monitors doesn't it? Are you keeping your current monitor? Why not just plug them both in? One monitor for Crysis, the other for just plain awesome.

    well normal tasks look bad on low resolutions, video games really dont look different. if you lower the resolution just for crysis, it doesnt look bad.
