Hi guys, so lets say:if my monitor resolution is set to 1920x1080(max resolution) and i want to play game at a lower resolution like 1600x900 or 1280x1024 and i set it in game,image becomes blur (in game),but if i manually change screen resolution to fit game resolution it's OK.Manually changing desktop resolution to fit game resolution is a mess for me every time doing it before starting a game,so what i want to know is: isn't there a way to automatically change desktop screen resolution for particular games when they start and then change back to normal when game quits?

Thanks in advance!!!

Thanks for your reply,actually i don't own any system yet.I am going to buy Hp notebook DV7 7212nr,it comes with Geofrce GT 650 2GB GDDR 5.Anyway on my previous PC i had Geforce GTS 250 1GB,but does it really have to do something with GPU?Shouldn't i have my desktop screen resolution set to same what my game resolution is?because when they don't match i don't get smooth image it's blur.Sorry if i am wrong i don't really know much about this stuff, and yes i could change my game resolution anytime without effecting desktop resolution,but image becomes blur(in game)...

Why do you need a laptop for? You fancy a laptop? Want to use it for work or gaming? If you want to play games buy a desktop with a decent CPU, MB, GPU, PSU.

To my knowledge there is no such software that will change the resolution before and after gaming automatically. And why do you want to play games in lower resolution...any cause? And it tends to get blurry when playing on a lower resolution.

Thanks for reply,i need a high perfomance notebook mainly for medium gaming,video editing,1080p videos.Which would be reliable with long lifespan and battery life.I have a desktop configuration for gaming,but i want to try notebook for portable and comfortable uses...
i want to play games on lower resolution,because i think i will be able to play at higher settings than at bigger resolution.About blur image:i may be wrong,but shouldn't screen and game resolution be same to get clear image?because otherwise it feels unnatural.Thank you for your help.

The difference may be the difference in your monitor doing the scaling, the video drivers or the game. I know the Nvidia drivers let you decide if the video card or monitor does the upscaling when using non-native resolutions. You may want to look into your video card drivers and try it each way.
