Hi, im currently planning a budget gaming build for around the $300 mark. Dont let your jaws hit the floor just yet i am reusing my case, hdd, and disk drive. I am only upgrading my mobo, cpu, ram, psu, and gpu for the time being.
I am aiming to run games like Skyrim (Which I plan to mod), BF2:BC, COD: WAW, BF3, and eventually SW: TOR; all at High - Ultra settings with low AA and AF at 720p
so just always run the game in the screens native res.
What about tv's that can be used as monitors and have multiple res approved settings?
LCD tv also has a native resolution , and its always best to run at that resolution , but some scale images to full screen .
If you are using a TV then find the setting in your graphics card driver software where you can enable Vsync. Monitors can handle it if they get too many fps , but some TV's could be damaged if you went over 60 fps [ on a 60 HZ tv]
Vsync will set the computer to run at a refresh rate the tv can handle
