so i bought a new dell desktop which replaces my old one. i was using a 23 inch led screen with my old computer. NOw the screen lettering seem small. and it doesnt fit the screen altogether. it seems small. what is causing this? I tried to change the resolution and the computer is saying that its not recommended the resolution it is on now is 1920x1080. Any thoughts?

was your old computer native 1080p?

if everything seems small, it's probably because the resolution is too high.

if you have windows 7, you can adjust the font sizes and stuff in the options.

Do you do any video editing with that I7 processor?

Nope, but I do encoding, and other processer intensive operations sometimes.
