Changing your monitor has no effect on how smoothly your games and movies run.

If they run smoothly with your existing graphics card and system RAM, they will also run smoothly with a different monitor.

If your movies and games do not run smoothly at present, you need to think about upgrading the graphics card, not the monitor.

Hi TonyBasumatary,

As rightly suggested by "phil22", monitor upgrade will not increase the game performance however, reducing the resolution of the game may increase the FPS(Frames Per Second).

The specification provided by you can run 21" full HD monitor.

Ensure that the monitor has ports compatible with the video card otherwise you would need a converter to connect the monitor.

Thanks & Regards

"i thought that display performance depends on the screen size and resolution too"

As I said, if you keep the same graphics card and the same amount of RAM, just buying a bigger monitor won't make any difference at all to game performance. The primary deciding factor in game performance is the graphics card.

To add to the above information. LCD monitors perform best when run at their native resolutions. If your graphics in your computer do not fully support the native resolution you will not have a good experience.

Generally speaking, the larger the monitor size, the higher the native resolution. When reading the minimum hardware requirements for a game, keep in mind that the minimum may not provide a satisfactory gaming experience.

For a more detailed answer you need to provide a model number or if a custom computer, the complete hardware specs. Most integrated graphics chips will not allow you to play the latest games at high settings, if at all.
