Same reason can be said about 1280x960. I use whatever looks best (IMHO) and always have. Actually I'm still using 1280x960 currently. Some games coupled with 2x AA do look better with 1280x1024 than using same settings and 1280x960. Again others might think different. I like most games at 640x480 believe it or not. Sometimes even a positive LOD I use. I like QAA on my G3 becuase of the filtering it has. (some ppl call it blur
) Again my preferences.
BTW I go on what looks best. What looks right is what looks best in terms of screen resolution (IMHO). So that leaves your statement contradictive to mine.
