I am sure most people here won't have a problem with that but I have no plans on upgrading my video card till I upgrade my system completely to 64bit (AM2 platform). So I am stuck with a 6800GT for a while.
Just use one of the other scaling options in the drivers like centered (no scaling) or fixed aspect ratio scaling. That way, you can use lower resolutions like 1280x1024, 1024x768, 1600x1200 without it being stretched.
