    Default Anyone find that large monitors usually detracts from gaming?

    So I been using a 19 inch monitor and then recently switch to a 25 inch monitor.

    The 19 inch monitor was far more enjoyable for gaming since I didn't have to keep moving my neck like I have to when using the 25 inch monitor.

    The 25 inch monitor is great for web browsing and watching movies, but in terms of gaming it didn't really do a good job at ergonomics.

    Smaller screens do make it easier to get a full-view of the game without having to constantly shift eyes and/or neck. I'm perfectly happy with my 19" monitor, which has an actual 16 inches of screen. Unless you intend to be really far away from your monitor, I wouldn't invest in one much larger than 20 inches.

    I have 2 24" and a 22". I never considered them detracting from gaming. You just need to get used to it.

    I play on my 39" Super slim tv for my monitor. It mounted on the wall right in front of where I sit on my bed. Works perfect for me. I prefer to have a larger screen. Play on 1920x1080 resolution.

    That was on Plasma and LCD screens way in the beginning. It's very hard to get image burn nowadays.

    When I used to play CoD on Xbox I always felt my performance was better on my smaller tube-box TV than on my 50" HD plasma screen.
