Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

that *must* be the placebo effect -- a tv's scanlines are only 320x240, but they update in odd intervals, making the effect of 640x480 -- so technically it's not even 640x480; that is... unless you have hdtv, which is right at 1024x768... even then, with most HDTV compliant tv's the difference isn't that great; many projection tv's will be "hdtv compatable", which basically means it will play hdtv formatted stuff, but at crappy quality -- equivalent to watching a dvd in vhs quality, it's just kinda pointless.
