Does Monitor resolution affect the recording ?

I am try record my game play on my monitor. the graphic looks fine when i play and record it down with high quality. but when upload it to youtube i only get a 720p quality. is it because my monitor is a 1366x768? do i need a 1920x1080 resolution monitor to record so that i can upload to youtube at 1080p ?

Please help me solve my problem
i really appreciate

Monitor resolution = game resolution = recorded video resolution.
If you edit your videos with video editing software, you may be able to output the videos at a higher resolution, but that will make them look worse because it's just stretching the pixels.

Correct.
You also need a computer good enough to run games at 1080p, and also record them at 1080p.
