    Ok so I'm going to get a new laptop soon, and I was wondering what LCD would be better for gaming.

    HD+ Widescreen 15.6 inch WLED LCD (1600x900) W/2.0 MP, XPS 1647

    vs.

    Edge-to-Edge FHD Widescreen 15.6 inch WLED LCD (1920x1080) W/2.0 MP

    the 1920 by 1080. the bigger the resolution the better the picture BUT its gonna be more taxing on ur system. so if u get the higher res screen then u need to make sure the parts are on par with it.

    IMO 15.6" screen is WAY too small for full 1080p. Heck, my 22" screen runs 1680x1050 and it looks great.

    I've also got a 22" LCD that I run at 1680x1050. I could not imagine running something smaller than that at a higher resolution... but that is also my personal opinion. My only question is though, if you are getting this laptop for gaming then why are you getting one with such a small screen?

    What is your budget if you don't mind me asking? Maybe we can help you pick something out.

    Just for comparion my dad's 16.1" laptop runs 1600x1200 native and everything is slightly too small. 1280x1024 looks bad though :(

    I think anything larger than 24" would be suited for 1080p.

    In this case, I'd probably have to agree with the 1600x900 option. I normally prefer full 1090, but at 15.6", things are going to be almost unreadable (at least by default)

    You could increase the DPI to compensate but then it doesn't look right but it's readable... :\
