1280*1024. Damn old 17 inch LCD! No space to get a bigger screen than a 19 inch (which mostly will have the same resolution)

Me & a buddy were lanning last night with FSX & i noticed a huge difference in image quality on the 19" monitor, it looked far better & sharper with better textures & more detail, the only diff with the 2 FSX settings was the resolutions, 1920x1200 on the 24" & 1280x1024 on the 19" all other settings were identical.

I'm seriously considering going back to the smaller monitor for gaming, thoughts?
How far back were you sitting from the monitor? That could make a difference on how smooth something looks. It sounds to me like something else is changing between the two pcs. If it was in fact the resolution, you should be able to drop your 24" down to 1280 x 1024 and all of the details will magically appear. If they do not then something is configured differently between the pcs.
