I had a monitor that was 1280 x720 but it accepted 1920x1080 signal no problem. Read online that some manufacturers sell the same monitor for different prices, it is cheaper to manufacture the same monitor and label it differently and charge more money for one. Just try it. If it goes out of signal just alt tab back to your desktop

why would you want to? you'll work your gpu harder and get slower frame rates for no benefit. Its used to be useful to do it for apps but not really any more.

Ok then.what would you recommend for lcd that can play those resolution? and what brand is it? I'm tight on budget so i prefer cheap and good brand.
Oh and another question, if i play game on a square monitor lcd with 1024x768 res is it still look good and sharp despite not a wide monitor lcd?
Thanks

it will be just as sharp regardless. what is your system specs? as I'd have to question whether you have the power to run 1080p
what country are you in, where can you shop, give us some options and we'll tell you which is best from them.

If you run at non-native resolution and stretch it to fill the screen, the image will not look sharp.

We need to know where you buying from and a budget to help you pick a good monitor.
