New rig, old monitor?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am moving to a new rig very soon and I am wondering if I can run 1920 x 1080 res on my 1680 x 1050 monitor? This may be a stupid question but a useful response would be very appreciated.

btw I have an HP 20.1 inch w2007 monitor
thanks in advance

no, your max resolution for your monitor is 1680x1050, your video card can scale down...but can't scale up

Native resolution = maximum res the monitor can display... Time to upgrade!

Just fyi, 1680x1050 is 16:10 aspect ratio. While 1920x1080 is 16:9 (more widescreen). If you want to maintain your 16:10 aspect ratio while still upping your resolution you might want to look into 1920x1200. Just a thought to think about.

No, you will not be able to. The 1920x1080 monitor has more than 2 million physical pixels, while the 1680x1050 only has 1.7 million pixels, so there is a physical limitation on your monitor and therefore it can't hit 1920x1080.
