Is it possible to reduce viewable size?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
From a certain inch monitor to smaller? I have a 23inch but want to make the viewable size as if I play on a 19inch, this make gaming for me better as it give me a motion headache sometime when screen size is too big. Is this anyway possible? Thanks for advice .

I have played with overscan and underscan before using CCC. If you are using it you can check it out. I am away from my desktop atm.

On my card which is an nvidia - (sorry i know yours is a radeon but it might give you an idea to look for) you can choose in the driver settings, if you want to scale the resolutions or not.

so i can set mine too display in whatever resolution its in, too stretch or stay in the middle.

So if you have a 1080p monitor you could play in 1600x900, and it would be in the middle with black edges. Maybe theres something like this in your settings too look for
