I went from a 19" CRT monitor running 1280x1024 to a 19" wide screen LCD running 1440x900

should games run better on the wide screen resolution because there are less pixel area to render

1,310,720 pixels vs 1,296,000

Should be no difference.

yes, but very small improvement.

turn on AA/AF and youll start to see the gap widen.

You should see approx a 1.1% increase if my math is correct, and it scales accordingly. :)

Heh...don't forget: not all games support widescreen resolutions. :(
