I plan to purchase a new monitor come Black Friday. I want to get a 1920x1080 monitor so I can watch HD content. However, I plan to game at 1680x1050. If I get a 1920x1080 monitor, will I be able to set the resolution to 1680x1050 with borders so the image isn't stretched? I prefer not to play in window mode. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
I picked up an Acer 21.5" 1920x1080 for $84 and a PNY GTS 250 1GB for $73. I downloaded the latest drivers, but I don't see an option to disable GPU scaling in the Nvidia control panel. Does anybody know how?
