Does 1680x1050 = 1080P. I ask this because I played COD4 on my PC current rig and also played the 360 version on an HDTV. I want to know why the HDTV looks 10x better and why I cant get my PC version to look at good as the 360 version. If it cant be done with 1680x1050 then what resolution will give me true HD picture?

From what i have been told it equals 1050P. I have 1920x1080 which is full 1080p. Your Hd but not "full" HD. From what i know you shouldnt be able to tell of a huge difference between the 2.

Edit: was beat to it.

Well, I am curios why you would think that 1680x1050 equals 1080p. The different numbers should be a give away.

Anyway, as people have stated 1080p means 1920x1080 and that is why it looked so much more kick butt(does ass get filterpwnd?) on your friends HDTV.

Idk on 360 version everything is all shiny and looks nice but on my PC ( All settings on high) I don't see the same thing I see on my 360.

It should look nicer on your computer with your hardware. I do agree my brothers xbox looks better once in a while but i dont have all the eye candy turned up.

Lol i can tell you the 360 version looks terrible compared to the PC version on my tv lol. Also im pretty sure cod4 only runs at 600p on consoles just like MW 2 will.

New stuff is always a good idea...but is it possible for you to connect your PC to your TV (which I presume is 1080P) and that should (I say should because I cant remember how regular TV's handle resolutions) give you 1080P

there's no such thing as 1050p... 1680x1050 is a 16:10 res and TV's use a 16:9 ratio. IIRC the only one before 1080p is 720p.

Yep,720P is the only other HD res,and then there's 480 (p or i ,I can never remember which) which is standard definition
