Anyways, I wanted to start off with my opinion on the resolution of 1280x1024. I do not understand why a lot of people like to use this resolution. This resolution is at an incorrect ratio, as opposed to 1280x960, so as a result the picture is slightly distorted.

Most OpenGL applications seem to utilize this resolution instead of 1280x960, which is just wrong. I guess there is no real problems with running a slightly distorted image, and most of the time it's probably not noticeable to the average user, but the fact is it is a resolution at an incorrect ratio, and in my opinion shouldn't even exist.

Peace to everyone, and enjoy the new forums!


My IIyama VMP 510 22" monitor doesn't support 12x9 so I run 16x12.....I use the R8500 on this one so I don't have to bother with the reg hack to enable it.

My Cornerstone p2460 supports 12x9 and is coupled with the Ti4600 ..
