depends on the game and your vram, it could work in some cases. but newer games definitely not frown.gif

edit: or with much lower settings to free up some vram for the higher resolutions.
in any case, you have to get a feeling about which combination between resolution, antialiasing and details you can use on your platform.

"do you follow the same steps for a 2048x1152 LCD? "
you can do that, just be sure to have the right amount of pixels to keep the aspect ratio..
