Default Re: What resolution do you game at?

I usually play older games at 2048x1536. 1600x1200 on recent games or if that's too slow I bump it down to 1440x1080.

Always at 85Hz with triple buffering and vsync forced through D3D Overrider.

CRT FTW.

1920x1200 on my 26" Sammy

I hooked up a 24" "non-tn" panel and ran it side by side with this one and yeah it looks better but it was also twice the monies.

Regardless, I'll never go back to a CRT

Am I the only one gaming on a weird resolution. I am using a 26" 720p HDTV that translates into a 1380x768 resolution in windows which is what I game at.

I used to until I bought a 24". The hdtv was a 23'' toshiba, and the 24'' @ 1920x1200 made it feel so ashamed that it quit working.
