You seem like you're just trying to justify your investment in hardware. Do other people's opinions threaten you for some reason? Are you okay?
Actually, I have to agree with the other poster - you sounded like you were trying to justify not being able to run higher resolutions.
I have plugged it into my tv and played at 1920x1080 and was not particularly impressed that it made the scene appear any more realistic. Of course, it was nice in many ways particularly the size, and I do like the widescreen format, but the color accuracy is not suitable for my computer use.
You're confusing so many issues. Colour accuracy has nothing to do with resolution; it's of no concern to this discussion whether the TV you bought isn't very good. Also, it's not about making a scene "more realistic" - it's about improving the quality of the visuals, which is something a higher resolution achieves.
A very large screen does need a high resolution, but this is just to keep the image from appearing pixelated at game-playing range.
And yet your point is how resolution isn't important to a CRT monitor, where you're running at a resolution with a lower pixel density than comparable TFT displays with fixed resolutions.
At the end of the day you come across as a cheapskate trying to justify why you running in lower detail is actually better than the rest of us. Now I'm not claiming that upping the resolution completely redefines the gaming experience but it has a definite impact and it sounds like you're in denial.
I run everything at 60Hz and have all my life. I can code for 20 hours or play games and it doesn't bug me in the least.
Wow. I couldn't stand 60hz, especially with large white areas (like those found with coding and browsing the web). It would give me the start of a headache within an hour. That said I have heard plenty of other people say the same as you, so I'm not questioning your statement.
