alright, I bought a 17inch LCD monitor today. The max resolution is 1280 x 1024. I have a few questions..

I am buying a new computer with a Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS video card. The video card said, resolution up to 2600 x 1800 or something. The question is, Am I even going to be able to play World of Warcraft in 1600 x 1200 with my new computer on the LCD, or 2600 x 1800. Or am I stuck at 1280 x 1024.. If so, I might as well buy a CRT for cheaper, if they support higher resoultion for gaming, eh?

Thanks.

I think u r stuck!!!

Cos ive got a 14.1 laptop with 1280 x 800. When i play TCE online if i set res from 1024 x 800 to 1280 x 900 or something half of the stuff arent visible because it cant fit it. Make sure u set res to what ur scren max res is or get a new screen as suggested.

I might b wrong here so wait for someone elses reply as well

:thumbsup:

I wouldn't set your screen to the max resolution but the recommended resolution... Just because a car CAN go to 150 miles an hour doesn't mean it's better...

I use a 19-inch LCD at 1280x1024, which is the highest anything will allow me to use. I found that with some games at that resolution, i experienced "ghosting," which is where the monitor can't refresh fast enough and a sort of shadow is left behind something moving on the screen.

By setting my monitor to 1024x768 in those games, I was able to reduce the ghosting and crank the visual settings as high as they would go.

Just because a car CAN go to 150 miles an hour doesn't mean it's better...

Yes, but it's always more fun to do 150 MPH then the "recommended" 60 MPH.
