7800gt And A Widescreen Monitor?

Recommended Posts

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?

Dell make great ones for the price.

 

Samsung are also great.

 

It really depends...

 

Anyway, you should be fine. I can max out pretty much every game and still get around 60fps at 1920*1200 with my specs below.

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 :)
