I understand the NEC EA231WMi does not have 1:1 pixel mapping. I take this to mean that if I run a game at 1680 x 10xx that the image will be stretched and look bad. Can a video card overcome this?
Why do I ask? I predict that some games simply will not be able to be run at the native resolution of this monitor 1920 x 1080, for performance reasons. Crysis probably won't run so well. Therefore, I would prefer a 1:1 mapping, yes with black bars, and run it at a lower resolution that would be tolerable.
Can the video card driver be made to do the mapping (I seem to recall reading this somewhere)?
For reference, my current video card is a 9800 GTX.
