Xbox Monitor w/ 16:9 ratio?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know this has come up before here in the forums (about playing xbox 360 on monitor) but my question has not been completely answered. Here is the situation...

Xbox 360 supports resolutions of 16:9:

640 x 480
848 x 480
1024 x 768
1280 x 720 (equivalent to 720p)
1280 x 768
1280 x 1024
1360 x 768
1920 x 1080

Now is there any monitor at or larger than 24 inches with the 16:9 aspect ratio. I know that you can scale down your resolution on your monitor to 1280x720, but is there LCD monitor on the market which runs at high 16:9 resolutions (say 1920 x1080)?

Also, is there gonna be quality loss to the game (jaggies around edges). Would running it through an HDMI cable help woth quality? Screen shots of anyone who has done this would be helpful!

Im trying to stay away from buying an LCD TV $$$$!!!

+rep for helpful resolutions! Thanks guys!

LCD monitors usually work under a 16:10 aspect ratio. If you're looking for a LCD with a 16:9 aspect ratio capable of reaching 1080p, that'd be an LCD TV at 1080p, which really isn't used unless you get something beyond a 30 inch screen.

When using an LCD monitor, you want to make sure that you use the native resolution to ensure the greatest picture quality.

I see. Well has anyone run their 360 on the 1920x1200 resolution in halo3 or any other xbox 360 game? Is the strehing noticable/playable?

Im supposing that running the 360 through a TV tuner on my computer wouldnt not help (only slow down) the gaming?

Most monitors should have an option to run 16:9 even though the monitor is 16:10. You wouldn't have any stretching but you'd have black bars.

I've been using my 16:10 monitor for 360 and PS3 for a while and I recently changed it from 1920by1080 ( stretched to 1920 by 1200 ) to 1920 by 1080 and i would say even with the black bars on the top and bottom i think it looks better.
