RE: sudden better performance!?
Just curious, what are your cpu and vid card? That kind of performance increase is typical when lowering your resolution if the cpu and/or gpu are struggling at higher res.
I used to dispare because I would see no improvement when lowering the resolution,until it dawned on me that what really is the case is that I'm getting no decrease in performance from raising the resolution,thanks mostly to the 9700pro.
Also, regarding the screen size issue with some resolutions; some monitors require you to resize the screen after a resolution change.My previous monitor did that.
