16:9 vs. 16:10: Stretch? Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Peripherals Last response: May 25, 2009 5:25 PM in Computer Peripherals Share uraflit May 25, 2009 7:45:15 AM Hi, I have read the FAQs (widescreengaming, etc) and searched on Google, but have not found a clear answer... I want to buy a 16:9 monitor so I can hook up my PS3 to it and play thru HDMI. My problem is, I also game a lot on the PC. AFAIK, most PC games run 16:10 aspect ratio... so wouldn't that be a problem? If i got a 16:9 monitor, would all my PC games be stretched and look all funky? Or would there simply be black bars? Or yet, would I be able to choose? Lastly, what would you recommend? I am currently looking at: - ViewSonic X Series VX2260wm - ASUS VH222H More about : stretch jaguarskx May 25, 2009 4:33:46 PM Most modern games (if not all) will support 16:9 aspect ratio (1920 x 1080, 1600 x 900). Hell, I get those resolution options when I load Far Cry 1 which was released back in 2003/2004. uraflit May 25, 2009 5:25:37 PM thanks for the answer! now i hope older games like warcraft 3 and such wont stretch too...
