I will buy Radeon hopefully if it works various screen resolution on 19 inches monitor.
I had radeon 9550 long time ago, I am not sure it did show various screen resolutions include 1280x960 on '1280x1024 monitor'. But geforce 7900 shows only 3 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024.




In Radeon 5000 series with 19" LCD (not wide), how many resolutions does it show?

For example, does it show only 3 like 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024?

Or does it show more than 3 resolutions include 1280x960?

There are many different aspect ratios.
3:2, 4:3, 5:4, 8:5 (16:10), 16:9.

I'm guessing your 19" is fullscreen (4:3).

you seem to be very uninformed about what a video card can do. The video card only displays what the monitor is capable of. So if you monitor can only show 800x600 in black and white, upgrading to an HD 5000 series won't increase the number of pixels that are displayed or add more colors.

if you want a different resolution, or a higher resolution, you're gonna need a new monitor

All standard (not wide screen) 19" monitors have a max (native) resolution of 1280 x 1024.

If you want higher resolution then you need to buy a larger monitor. For example:

2560 x 1600 = 30" LCD monitor
1920 x 1200 = 24" to 28" LCD monitor
1920 x 1080 = 21.5" to 24" LCD monitor
1680 x 1050 = 19" (wide screen) to 22" LCD monitor

Some high-density monitors (ie, the ones on laptops) can squeeze more pixels into a display.

Like mine :p 

But, generally, he's correct, for desktops. This thread wouldn't really make sense in the notebook realm.

No. I said 1280x1024. That is 5:4. I am not asking about that. Strange answer.

I am not asking about increasing resolution.

If I radeon 5800 connect to 19" (1280x1024) how many resolutions can I see? Only 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024? Does it show 1280x960?

I am not asking about higher resolution. I am asking about connecting radeon 5800 to 19" and how many resolutions can I see?

And I am asking to Radeon 5800 with Standard 19" LCD users.

I would say yes.

In CCC 1280x960 is shown as an option for my 26" LCD monitors.

It seems adjusting true ratio is very difficult in these days monitors.

I play games at 4:3, one day I moved 5:4 ugly ratio LCD monitor because I couldn't find 4:3 LCD monitor. So I bought 5:4 monitor. Radeon 9550 did work for 4:3 because it showed 1280x960 then I used black bars mode for true ratio. But Radeon 9550 was so weak for 1280x960 (most games don't work well, low fps.) so I decided to get 7900 GS.

Sadly 7900 GS didn't show 1280x960, instead it shows only 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600. Playing 4:3 games on 5:4 ratio feel so bad. I tried to make custom resolution from NVIDIA driver, but such created resolution always stretched whole area in 'Do not scale' mode. So 4:3 games had to work in 5:4 distort mode.

Luckily PowerStrip did well work, It's 1280x960 could make black bars for true ratio!

PowerStrip cannot support later cards.

Even getting widescreen, I doubt almost all of widescreen games are not work as true 16:9 neither true 16:10 (mean at least some distort). Are most widescreen games have true 16:9? or true 16:10?

Widescreens don't have full 4:3. For example 1920x1080 widescreen monitor must need 1440x1080 but it doesn't.

So these days going to encourage using distort ratio for 3D games.
