The one that comes in 1080x1024 will be better quality or will have more detail to the image on the screen, so the bigger the resolution the better.

For graphics monitors, the screen resolution signifies the number of dots (pixels) on the entire screen. For example, a 640-by-480 pixel screen is capable of displaying 640 distinct dots on each of 480 lines, or about 300,000 pixels. This translates into different dpi measurements depending on the size of the screen. For example, a 15-inch VGA monitor (640x480) displays about 50 dots per inch.

Simply put, the first number is the number of dots. The second number is the number of horizontal lines.
