One of us! One of us!

Go into Nvidia control panel and set a custom resolution. Display > Change resolution > Customize > Create Custom Resolution > Set Vertical Lines to 1080.

Apparently it's only 12.5 lbs without the stand, that's a bit of a shocker. Seriously though, rated weights on VESA arms are almost 100% bogus. Basically you want to get the beefiest arm that fits your budget.

Though the stand you linked has great reviews, so I'm wondering if maybe there was a nut/screw that needed further tightening to lock the height in place?

You'll be fine. Just stick to the boxes on the top half, don't go messing around in the bottom half.

This is so awesome. On 120hz.net, one guy was trying 3459x1440, he says try these resolutions in multiples of 320. He mentioned something about supersamping the pixels. Can you guys clarify? Also, is this safe or will it damage my monitor in the long run.

What's the reason for changing the resolution like that?

Fun biggrin.gif

Also, with a larger aspect ration you can "see more" of the game. It's like watching a movie in widescreen.

But pixel count is a physical number....I understand lowering the aspect ratio, but increasing it doesn't make any sense.

Totally safe. I run 3840x1620 all the time. biggrin.gif And it should be done in multiples of 54. 3456x1458 is the right ratio. It's actually 64:27 which reduces to 21.33:9. Though you can use any arbitrary ratio, but for an actual 2560x1080 panel multiples of 54 are needed to prevent letter/pillarboxing.

Here is the "original" and still most thorough downsampling guide: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=346325

Downsampling is essentially "less than whole multiple" supersampling. True driver based supersampling comes in 1x2, 2x1, 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4 variations. With downsampling you can go from 1.05 to 1.95. In my case at 3840x1620 I am using 1.5x downsampling.

Increasing aspect ratio widens the FOV, much like adding two additional monitors for Eyefinity or Surround does (but just not as much, that ends up being 48:9, vs 21:9). The issue is that raising it above the display's native ratio causes letterboxing. 21:9 on a 2560x1440 will cause 180 pixel black bars on the top and bottom. Crazy folk like me went and bought a native 2560x1080 29" display. biggrin.gif

So i changed my resolution to 2560x1080 and my desktop has widened and there are black borders on the top and bottom of my screen. I just loaded up bf3 and chose the option for 2560x1080. However, the aspect ratio doesn't appear to have changed or I guess is not that noticeable. Also, everything looks extremely compressed and like I am playing a console at 720p.
