VulcanDragon I'm confused...you're changing resolutions on the laptop's LCD, or you are sending the video out to a real monitor?

If LCD, then as gcraw said, stick with the native resolution of the LCD. By design, LCDs have one RGB crystal for each pixel. If you change the resolution in Windows, then that is no longer true and the pixels become interpolated. Your image is therefore degraded.

If monitor, then just set the resolution as high as the onboard video will output that still results in good frame rates. Personally, I don't see any benefit in games above 1280x1024. Higher resolutions don't add polygons to the models, and I notice that more than anything else these days.

thenut I refuse to run any less than 1600x1200... and if I still had a 22" monitor Id be enjoying 1920x1440 and above... :/

YiffyGriffy I like a high resolution on my desktop, I run 1600x1200 for the desktop, but games I usually stick to 1280x1024 or less. I'd just get the 15.4 inch one because it's 0.4 inches bigger

Mine is the same way muffin...the windows desktop looks and performs best there...but of course games must run smaller.
