Is there any major difference between 900p and 1080p for a gaming pc?
I have an old 900p monitor that i had for years and i haven't bothered upgrading. Will there be any major difference between a 1080p monitor and a 900p?

It's more about what you are using to feed into the monitor. Then you discuss the screen diagonal because larger screens are fuzzier in low resolution.
Once at 25 inch or more, even 1920x1080 is not great resolution for gaming, but you need a stronger graphics processor to handle higher resolution displays.
19.5" 1600 x 900 in standard 16:9 is 162.5 sq inches 1,440,000 pixels 8862 pixels/inch squared
21.5 1920x1080 > 197.5 sq inches 2,073,600 pixels 10,499 pixels/inch squared
21% bigger images at 18% finer resolution and clarity
23.6" 1920x1080 > 238 sq inches 2,073,600 pixels > 8712 so you get a bigger screen at the same resolution. You get 46% bigger images at about the same clarity.
And, with a good enough graphics processor, at $230 now
AOC U2790VQ 27" 4K 3840x2160 UHD Frameless Monitor, IPS, 5ms
27 inch diagonal 311.5 sq inches, 8,294,400 pixels 26,627 pixels per inch
Almost twice the area, about triple the pixel density, but in gaming, you need a great graphics processor to drive 4K
