    So I was messin around with the nvidia control panel and found out I could push my 24" 1080p monitor to 2560x1440 @ 65hz. If I leave it like that is there any damage I could possibly do to it? Common sense tells me its a terrible idea haha but maybe someone else could shed some light on this.

    I have been dabbling a bit at 2560, but I leave the refresh rate at 60hz. what kind of frame rates you getting with a 650ti at 2560, and what games. I am not saying its safe, (not sure on that). I havent run into any problems though.

    Oh the fps @ 2560 are garbage haha. Everything runs perfect @ 1080p, runs horrific @ 1440p. If I turn down the quality settings to extreme instead of ultra in crysis 2 its more than playable, but other games dont seem to even give me the option of 2560x1440 so I cant really test it out.

    If you made the custom resolution through ncp it should populate in the games video settings.

    Some games require a true 16:10 or 16:9 ratio. 2650/1.6=1656

    I feel you guys I went from 1080p to 1440p and had to get a 2nd video card to make it feel the same as 1080p did.

    you mean 2560/1.6=1600 correct?


    on a little side note, it seems awfully fuzzy, like the text is all soft. Maybe because its not supposed to run at that res haha.

    How are you running a 1080p LCD monitor at a resolution higher than its actual max resolution?

    I believe it's called down-sampling and it basically give you the same effect as msaa but it does make text look like crap.

    If you installed the correct monitor driver it wont do damage.

    If you have CRT only then it may be damaged. ;)

    I have downsampled for awhile now...no problem on my end...just up the speed of my fans to 70% on both my cards, and everything has been fine....works great.
