After 3 years, my beloved 22" CRT is giving up. I want to replace it with an LCD giving similar screen real estate, but I'm confused by the resolution choices. My primary applications are digital photography (i.e., Photoshop) and gaming. I currently run the CRT at 1280x1024 which gives my admittedly aging system the ability to not stagger and die under PS loads and games. The 20.1" LCDs I've seen look great, but is it required to run them at the recommended resolution (say, 1600x1200)? I know previous generation LCDs had a "native" resolution where everything looked best. I'm planning on upgrading to a more powerful system (I build them myself), but not for a few months. I have an NVIDIA 6800 GT 256MB video card which is pretty powerful, but my processor is an AMD 64 3200+ which is getting old. If I can run the LCD at non-wide settings, is there a penalty? Finally, if the monitor requires a non-standard resolution, will my video card be able to support it (i.e., is the non-standard resolution one of the choices from the menu)? Thanks.
