all three consoles work well on monitor but whats bugging me is the resolution.all of them support upto 1080p but render games at native 720p albeit few games.i will set options below & post your suggestions of which setting is the best among them for better visual quality lacking any downsides aswell.

1:console set on 1080p + monitor at 1080p

2:console set on 720p + monitor at 720p

3:console set on 720p + monitor at 1080p

plz be considerate with for being ultra specific on this thread.

Console and monitor set to 1080p. Monitors are awful at displaying non-native resolutions, it's better to have the console do the upscaling.

but will the quality of graphics be worse due to upscaling since majority of games are rendered at 720p or it looks good or even better than being displayed on HDTV.

A 1080p monitor has 1920x1080 pixels, to display a 720p image it has to be scaled, there's no way around it unless you want the image taking up only half of the monitor.

That will depend on the quality of the TV and the quality of the monitor.

You always want the console doig the upscaling. Leaving the TV to upscale might introduce input lag as the TV might then decide to do other thigns to the incoming signal.

If your TV has a "PC" mode, try that, it usually disables most or all of the TV's signal processing, which will reduce input lag.
