Default Re: NVNews Widescreen LCD Club (formally DELL thread)

Well I take back what I said about quake4. It seems I can run it at the 1650 resolution but I have to run in Single monitor mode not dual view. In dual view I get a significant framerate hit on the 6800GT.

Yeah I hate them too, I would swap it out but the last monitor(dell 2001) I did the swap thing was a long exchange. First one had no dead pixels but had a backlight problem that caused a white halo in the corner. The exchanged one had like a whole bunch of dead pixels but no halo, the third had no dead pixels but a slight halo. The forth one had one dead pixel an no halo. I really don't want to do that again with dell cause the waiting for UPS to pick up the package or having someone available to basically wait all day till UPS picked it up was terrible. It is the biggest disadvantage of buying online for big items like monitors.
