WHEN YOUR STRETCHING 1360X768 ON A 32" SCREEN IT WILL LOOK LIKE ASS, LIKE THAT SCREEN SHOT.

Just incase you don't see it

Do you notice the bars between a cars windshield and the windows? Well, you do, but you don't care. They are there, they split the image, they're not moving, but you don't care


Same thing with 3x monitors

I do that too with my 42" and 25". It's a pain though because it kind of defeats the purpose of having 2 screens when gaming. Since the mouse is bound to the gaming screen, you can't interact with anything on the other monitor. I wish there was some button you could hold that would release the mouse pointer to the other screen, while still staying in full screen mode.

You have to adapt to everything. For every change you make to your life it's going to create differences that you need to adjust to. I got a new mouse, I had to adapt to the sensitivity change. New car, adjust to the firmer clutch.

And your scenario doesn't really work because an i7 and a single core are nowhere near comparable in performance, so no, you cant adapt so that "you really have the same performance".

That screenshot was from bops. I thought bops was a fantastic looking game. I was playing it on my 17.3" 1080p laptop monitor and on the 32" 1360x768 monitor. Certainly enjoyable either way. Game is definitely a MUST buy for the SP.

32" TV =! 32" computer monitor

My 22" dell is 1080p, so I have way more space for windows and such on screen.
720P just sucks for a computer.

Lol, because I thought black ops looked good? There were definitely a few levels in black ops that looked very good IMO.
