Correct Resolution For A 19 Inch Widescreen Monitor

What screen resolution do i use for a 19 inch widescreen?

Before i had a regular sized screen i think 17 inch, and i had it on 1280x1024. I want to correctly scale it up to my new monitor, i want to try and have the same pixels to inch ratio (as close as possible) just with more pixels on my screen

Right now i have it on 1440x900 but it feels kind of weird (maybe im just not used to the widescreen expierence) edit: bassicaly id like to keep the same height, the height shrunk abuot 100 pixels and i think thats whats causing the weirdness. Btw my video card is an ati pci-express (i forget the model) and im using the dvi port thing.

Dell 24 Ultrasharp Widescreen Monitor Support

I'm looking in to buying a wide-screen monitor for my computer and i'm kind of new at this and i want to make sure my system is able to support it. My dell computer is about 5 years but this is what i have: dell deminson 8200, intel pentium 4, 1. 80 ghz, 256 mb of ram. I had to go buy a video card yesterday and wal-mart only had one kind, radeon 9250 128 mb, i wanted more than mb but i had to settle with this. On the dell website on the monitor page it says to optimize this monitor's performance your system must be able to support wuxga resolution (1920 x 1200). On the video card box it says the video card will support it but i just was not for sure if my system would and i was hoping somebody could give me some advice on this forum before i go off and buy a monitor like that.

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

Graphics Card For 19 Inch Ws Monitor

New to graphics and monitors, so chances are it will be easy to solve. I have just been give a 19'' widescreen lcd for crimbo. I am currently running onboard graphics as i don't need anything special. The highest resolution i can get is 1280 x 1024, but when in widescreen mode, it stretches everything and look rubbish. I have looked at the papers that have came with it and the read as follows:-

19'' widescreen
Max res 1440 x 900

I cant seem to find this setting in my properties, so i assume i will need a graphics card upgrade. Am i on the right lines? Or am i missing out something very simple? I would really like to have the monitor on widescreen and have the resolution so that it fills the screen without the stretching. This will maximize the monitor and my workspace.

Phillips 17 Inch Monitor Shrinks

One of my 17 inch monitors (phillips) starts up fine but within 1 minute or 2 it shrinks to about half of the width, with the sides concave. It is definitely the monitor, as i can plug it in to different computers and it acts the same. The buttons cannot reset it, neither by resetting to factory, nor by adjusting pincushion. What next?

Monitor Price Of Samsung, Lg 15.6 Inch

What is the price if samsung, lg and different other brand 15. 6 inch monitor?


Are you looking to purchase an lcd or a crt monitor? Crt monitors are really hard to find now and taking into consideration the current prices, it no longer makes sense because they are pretty much outdated and have been replaced by lcd monitors. And even if you look at lcd monitors, it won't be easy to find small monitors in the market now. A dell in1910n which is an 18. 5 inch monitor with a maximum resolution of 1366x768 pixels will cost you 6, 000 rupees according to the website under source. It's better you purchase a 20" monitor which will cost you around 6, 500 to 7, 000 rupees. Here's a small list of 20" monitors: http://www.Priceguide. In/monitor-size/20-inch/

Video Card For 1680x1050 And 22 Inch Monitor

After years of great gaming with an 8800gtx it finally went out and i am now stuck using a old geforce fx 5200. Since i need a new video card for my system i would like to know what is recommended. I would like to know what video card you guys recommend for a gaming res of 1680x1050. This is off topic, but i am also considering upgrading my cpu from a q6600 to a e8500 although i could swear that i got a major performance boost when i went from a 2. 4ghz core2duo i forget the model to a q6600 g0 in crysis. I would like advice on this from other gamers. Is it worth the change for game performance?

My most played games are:

Fallout 3, mass effect, and witcher enhanced.

Using 32 Inch Samsung Lcd Hdtv For A Monitor

Using the 32inch samsung lcd hdtv for a monitor? What do ya guys think? Sure an arm and a leg needs to be sacrificed for it, i certainly cant afford it, but lets just assume you could afford it. How would it fare as a monitor? Staring at this enormous screen in front of you, playing call of duty 2 on that would make me drool.

Best Sli Setup / 30 Inch Monitor / Psu Questions

I am about to buy a new computer, that includes a dell 3008wfp. My budget is 3000$ and buying that monitor leaves me with ~1700 (assuming i buy the monitor refurbished). I have a few questions regarding some of the components. Cpu: intel i7 920
Motherboard: asus p6t
Memory: ocz platinum triple-channel kit 2gb/stick pc3 10666
Hard drives: ocz apex 60gb ssd wd 640gb 7200 rpm 32mb cache
Graphics card(s): 2 bfg geforce gtx 280 ocx edition in sli
Psu: corsair 850tx 850w

Since i am running this on a 30 inch monitor, i wanted something powerful enough to support 2560x1600. Since the gtx 295 seems to be at its eol (it is not being sold anywhere) i decided to go with the gtx 280s in sli for now. First question - do you think the gtx 280s in sli are best? I am pretty partial to nvidia but it seems that 4890s in crossfire performs just as well and are cheaper. Second question - dell 3007wfp-hc or dell 3008wfp? The cheaper the better, but i do not want to risk major loss in performance for price. After reading the hardocp thread about this exact same question (listed here) i am still somewhat confused. The 3008 has more inputs and a onboard scalar. Having this scalar allows you to read a lot more resolutions regardless of what resolution may be coming in (because the scalar scales the resolution coming in)? In the case of the 3007, not having this scalar means that sending a resolution to the 3007 that it does not support will not work? This is a very important question to me, because if i were to buy the 3008, the only way it would work, is if i were to buy it refurbished, and even then i would still break 3000. Third question - am i pushing it too close with running a 850w psu with the gtx 280 sli setup?

Dell Ultrasharp Monitor Resolution

I just installed the dell 2005fpw ultra sharp lcd monitor with a dimension e510. In the setup instructions, dell really emphasizes the need to set the display resolution to 1680 x 1050 for optimal performance - so i did. When watching streaming video or dvd movies at that resolution, the sharpness & clarity of the images is outstanding - very desirable, like hdtv. However, when set this way, the displayed images for all of the other typical applications (like email, web browsing, word processor, etc. ) Is unacceptable for my aged vision & preferences. In particular, the fonts become so tiny that they're difficult to read without some magnification. Up until now, i have always used 800 x 600 resolution which provides decent sized fonts for easy reading. My question: is it possible to set the computer/monitor so the best of both worlds can be had? In other words, i would like the font size to be like the 800 x 600 pixel setting for every day applications. However, when viewing video or dvd movies the resolution would be like the 1680 x 1050. I tried various font sizes & some of the advanced property settings in the desktop menu, but have not found any combination that works. When the fonts used by windows are enlarged, they remain tiny in my (mozilla firefox) web browser & (thunderbird) email. I would really appreciate some direction here. Although i've been using & tinkering with computers for more than 10 years, this is my first experience with display resolution.

S-video Resolution On Dual Monitor Setup

I have an inno3d nvidia geforce4 ti4200 (agp 8x , 128mb ddr). It has a vga port and an s-video output, but no digital output. I'm considering buying an lcd/tv monitor (as a second monitor) and using the s-video connection to setup a dual monitor system. My concern is resolution when using s-video. The inno3d website says:

Optional tv-output support 1024x768 / 800 x 600 resolution

What do you guys think? Will i get a crisp 800 x 600 resolution using s-video input (assuming that the lcd/tv is decent)?

Also, i'm using windows 2000. Will i need to upgrade to xp in order to get dual monitor functionality?

Dell E193fpc Monitor Resolution Problem

My dell monitor e193fpc cannot show at proper resolution. I got a replacement (used) dell computer and had to temporarily use a very old, large monitor that could only show resolution of 640x480 at 16 bit color quality. Now that i have my 19" flatscreen, it is showing at the same size and resolution. I cannot find a driver that my computer recognizes from the dell website. Does anyone know what i may be doing wrong?

Dual Monitor Resolution Not Compatible Problem

I have a samsung syncmaster 943 (19") and a benq t720 (17") dual monitor set up. Monitor one is the "generic pnp monitor on standard vga graphic adapter" and second monitor is the "generic pnp monitor on nvidia geforce pcx 5900". I'm using windows 7 ultimate professional. Everything is working perfectly, apart from the fact my 1st monitor resolution is set on 1024 x 768 but my problem is the fact that the incorrect driver is installed. If i update my driver for that monitor on windows update, everything works fine for monitor one, but monitor 2 then says something about "resolution 1360 x 768 not compatible on 60htz" and on monitor 1 a message pops up saying "your system has no multiple monitor support" and "windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". So then obviously i have to do a system restore so i can use my dual monitors again. Can anyone help out? I read somewhere that dual monitors have to use the same drivers but if i do that, it still doesn't help. Any suggestions?

Samsung Syncmaster 2033sw Monitor Resolution Problem

How do i get my laptop display to offer the optimum 1600 x 900 resolution for my samsung wide screen monitor? I have a compaq presario c700 laptop with an extra monitor - the samsung syncmaster 2033sw (a 20'' widescreen monitor), running windows vista. The optimum resolution for this monitor is 1600 x 900, but neither the regular display settings nor the intel(r) graphics media accelerator driver will offer me this combination. The closest options i get are 1280 x 960 or 1600 x 1200, and both of these look terrible. I have installed samsung's driver, and tried restarting a few times, and nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

Disable Optimum Resolution Feature On Samsung Monitor

Can i disable the "optimum resolution" feature on my samsung monitor? I have a samsung syncmaster 2033bw 24" monitor and an nvidia 9800gt graphics card. Every time i open up a game that doesn't have a resolution of at least 1600 x 1200 my monitor will pop-up with a little window in the middle of the screen telling me "it is not currently an optimum resolution. Recommended resolution is: 1920 x 1200. "

Of course, because the game is so old, there just isn't a resolution so high. Even so the monitor eventually just goes into a "stand-by" mode which just leaves me with a blank screen until i alt + tab out of the game. Does anyone know if i can fix this problem?

Connect Laptop At Higher Resolution To Monitor Or 1080p Tv

Can a 15" laptop with 1280x768 connect at higher res to a big monitor or 1080p tv? I bought at 18" laptop with 1080p. It connects well to my 46" 1080p tv via hdmi (playing blu-ray disks). And it connects well with my 21" monitor at 1050. (It wont try to go above the native res of my monitor-as if my monitor is telling the laptop what its max resolution is. )

But the laptop is very heavy, and i would mostly use it hooked up to a monitor or tv. I'm thinking of returning it and getting a 15" laptop with the same specs, including the video card. But the laptop can only go to 768. But there is this 'projection only' mode that i'm guessing could go as high as either my tv or my monitor (even if it can display it on my laptop screen). What do you think? Will the 15" perform as well as the 18" when connected? Or will it constantly object to being driven at higher resolutions? (Like - what will happen when i disconnect from the monitor and its being driven at above its 'native' resolution. )

Getting Higher Resolution Monitor, Should I Upgrade My Cpu Or Video Card ?

My system is in my sig. I am planning on getting a larger monitor and going from 1680x1050 to 1920x1200. I know its not that much of a differance but i also have enough money to also get either a cpu (phenom ii 955) or a new video card (radeon 5770). About the only games i play is world of warcraft, burnout paradise, and battlefield 2, and 2142. Which would be the best for me to get, the video card or cpu?

Not that it really matters but i plan on getting the samsung t260hd.

Laptop Resolution 1600x900 With 24" Monitor To Display 1920x1080

If my laptop has resolution up to 1600x900 and it connects to a 24" monitor, can i display 1920x1080 on it? The 1920 x1080 for the monitor, of course. Answer:- almost certainly you can. 1920x1080 isn't all that much more than 1600x900, and the limitation is ultimately in the screen. Most laptops have graphics cards that are capable of higher resolution than the laptop's built-in screen.

Eyefinity And Non Widescreen Monitors

Widescreen Good For Gaming ?

I was just wondering how well the new widescreens work for games old and new. I know a lot of the new games have support for native widescreen resolutions. I know i'm going to be spending a life time playing medieval total war 2, and it does have support for the widescreen resolutions (which would be totally awesome to have a better view of the battlefield). I'm kinda torn between 2 monitors right now the normal viewsonic xtreme vx922 19" or a viewsonic vg2230wm 22" as you can tell i'm a fan of viewsonic. The wide-screen is about $150 more than the 19", however this is probably going to be a present so it doesn't matter too much. Oh and i'm assuming that my eyes won't notice the difference between 2ms and 5ms refresh rate. I hope the widescreen can go up to 85hz refresh rate?
