I'm having problems with finding supported resolutions for games, specifically with widescreen resolutions. I was looking at widescreen monitors with 1440x900 or 1680x1050 resolutions, do you know if either is more supported than the other? Or if I should just get a normal resolution monitor?
I will be playing World of Warcraft and Half Life2 and any other FPS I pick up along the way. Just would like to know what type of monitor would be best, as I really have gotten accustomed to my widescreen monitor because of my mac, but I need the PC for gaming.
I was talking about when the game doesnt support widescreen, i.e. you have a 16:10 (1440X900) but the game supports res of 4:3 (800X600 etc)
you can play it with a res. of 1024X768, but it will look streached, the maintain aspect ratio will add black bars, which some people dont like, its like watching 4:3 movie on a widescreen TV, sure you can but if you want it to have the correct aspect then you dont use like 30% of the screen. some people would prefer 'fat' streched people
