Best Resolution for CSS? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
actually 1024x768 would be better on a 17" monitor....on a 19" you should play at like 1280x1024....on a 17" the latter would be blurry.

On that setup, you should be at least 1280x960 or 1024, with all details on high, 4xAA (the best setting for NV cards on Source), 16xAF and full HDR. You should see no lag...unless you are on a crappy server

"Best" is subjective. I often play games at 1024x768 on my 21 incher. Looks fantastic as long as 4xAA is enabled. I don't see much difference when I bump it up higher.

I had a 17" crt...and it got a lil blurry at that res...not to mention everything was like...extremely tiny. My 19" handles 1280x1024 a lot better. That's why I said that
