My System Specs


Monitor size has no effect on your graphics card or power. Resolution does.

On a monitor that size you'll probably find that everything is very big (icons etc) as the resolution is the same but area it's covering is much larger.
Quality should be fine. I would suggest the slight resolution bump up to 1920 x 1200 if you can.
it will push the GPU that lil bit more but should be fine as long as your not doing anything too intensive(relative to the gpu).

P.S. More resolution means you get more on your screen. Which I think is what your after if I've read your post right.
Drop your resolution down to 1440x900 to see what I mean.. (ignore the fuzzyness of the image) It's like zooming in.
The same thing will happen if you keep the same resolution and get a larger monitor. You will have the same space to work as you have now but everything will be larger.

Is there a connection for a second monitor on your workstation?
If yes, a second monitor may be Ideal and is my solution for work (would have 3 but it's an nvidia chip and they only support 2)
