The resolution will be limited to the max-res your monitor can display.

e.g. my 19" is also limited to 1280x1024.


One tip: Turn off HDR. where it's been enabled, it just makes everything luminous, typically when you're about to be shot.

Agree entirely about flashbangs being insane - it's possible to dodge them by looking away, but even then you've got to spin back around and squint like a demon to see what's going on.


EDIT: Source engine runs on my radeon 8500.

You should be fine. Not sure about maxing it, but it will be playable.

Damn your right I just checked but doesnt seem right because I had higher resolutions in xp but now Im limited on xp64 and I cant even find drivers for it. Its installed as plug and play monitor. But its funny because I do have another monitor that goes very high.

You have to press against a wall, you can't just look away for flashbangs in css (although it helps some).

You would be maxing it out without HDR and AA.
Not bad at all...
