I have a windows7 64 bit comp, when i connect my Philips 24 inch 246ELH to my motherboard using VGA cable it allows resolution upto 1920*1200 which looks great (although windows recomends 1920*1080 which is Philips specifications). But the problem is when i connect the same monitor to NVIDIA NVS295 on the same comp using a Display port to HDMI converter windows or NVIDIA control panel does not allow me resolution above 1920*1080. I want 1920*1200through NVS295 ? I also want to know if it will spoil my Philips monitor by using higher resolution than the one specified by Philips. Please help as i want to buy 3 more 24 inch monitors to connect to my NVS295 cards which i already have. Thanks in Advance

Did you install NVS 295 drivers?

I misread, so disregard my first answer.

It will not allow you to set resolution higher than the one specified by philips with HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI because it cannot display that. The reason it can do that with vga is because VGA signal doesn't contain information about every pixel, it just transfer total image look. That way the monitor has no way of knowing what kind of signal the computer sent and therefore allows it.

1. If i use VGA cable and set resolution to 1920*1200 will it spoil my lcd, since i don't have a problem with the quality ? If No then
2. Will i get 1920*1200 option incase i put a converter and convert my display port to DVI to VGA , because it seemed that it was windows driver and motherboard which were supporting 1920*1200 not NVS295.

It wont spoil the LCD, as the LCD will either perform some downsizing formatting in order to display the provided image on the LCD, i.e. it will convert the 1920x1200 image to 1920x1080 and you will lose some quaility of image, or it will cut the image, and you will loose some part, usually either the top or the bottom.

Sometimes if they are smart, you may get the whole image and it will scroll up and down depending on where the mouse is, but that usually only works if the computer knows that the display is not downsizing the image and that the image is greater in size than what the display can handle. This is not likely via the VGA port.

In the end, you are better off sending the size image that the display will handle natively as that will provide the best image quaility and normally the greatest image area.

If you want higher resolutions, spend some money and by a better monitor.

1. No.
2. Yes, but it's pretty useless to do: on receiving the signal the monitor will still convert it to 1920x1080, regardless of what is set on the video card.

I don't mind the monitor showing 1920*1080 resolution as far as it can show more content by downsizing 1920*1200 projected by the graphic card. i have also just purchased a ViewSonic VA2448m-LED which does not give windows the option above 1920*1080. My motherboard is a Intel G41TY which has capability of giving higher resolution by doing custom resolution in Intel Graphic & Media Control Panel. I don't know what values to put in
1) Width ( i assume it to be 1920 the resolution i want)
2) Height ( i assume it to be 1200 )
3) Refresh Rate ?
4) Colour Depth 8/16/32/All Colours(4 options)
5) UnderScan Percentage ( 0 to 100%)
6) Timing Standard (GTF or CVT or CVT-RB.

I have removed my NVIDEA NVS295 as they were hanging a few screens by 2 to 5 seconds as if using more RAM or CPU power. (i have a core2Quad 2.66 with 4 GB RAM and Windows7 64 bit.

A) I am not loosing any quality which is visible, nor is it cutting my image, it is reducing the complete image to fit perfectly in my screen, nor does the image scroll up or down depending on the mouse & the best part is that all this is possible using the VGA port . How can i be sure that the monitor is not showing me 1920*1200 but 1920*1080 ???

A) LCD monitors will only display an image that is the size of the number of pixels it has. If it is a 1920x1080 display, that is what it will display. If you provide a larger image like 1920x1200, then the display, if it can, will downsize the image, by some method of interpolation, which will lose quality because at some point it will have to guess which pixels to remove from the image, and as the image you are providing needs t have 120 pixels removed from one direction, and none the other, then it is not an even interpolation, thus it will be noticable image degredation. If the image is upsized because you supply a lesser image, then the interpolation will need to add pixels to the image, which normally makes it fuzzy, and is usually more noticable than downsizing. Basically, if you display output is rated to a specific size, then that is what you should use for the best image quality, anything else is pointless and will introduce degredation.

B) you should use the settings which makeyou happy,
myself I would use
1) 1920
2)1080
3) 60Hz (most LCD's are 60Hz, if you LCD supports higher, then use it - look it up in the manual)
4) All colour
5) No idea, leave at default or look at the help file/manual
6) No idea, leave at default or look at the help file/manual
