Well I have some questions about getting an LCD widescreen monitor. First, anyone know if an EVGA 7800GT is capable of widescreen resolutions (1680x1050)? I tried looking up the info on my properties screen but that res wasnt listed (tho maybe its because im using a 4:3 monitor right now).

 

Second, is about games. How do I get games to run in that res?? Im also worried about poor performance by running a weird res. Anyone have this happen? And what about dead pixels? I dont wanna pay money and get screwed by dead pixels.

 

Lastly, what are the best makers of LCD's?

i just went into nvidia control panel and added 1680x1050, 32bit colour, 85 Hz as a custom resolution and tested it and it worked

 

there are several widescreen gaming sites and forums to help you out with setting widescreen resolutions for your games :)
