Monitor Update

So it turns out this monitor does support 1600×1200@85hz, but for some reason the proprietary NVIDIA driver won’t support that mode. The open-source driver, nv, supports it without problems. Unfortunately that means I get to choose between adequate video performance, and a non-headache-inducing refresh rate. Gah…

    i’ve had nothing but problems with my resolution on my LCD at home (19″ envision).

    BAH. nothing looks right anymore. i’m about to roll back all my drivers & go linux myself.

    1. But… LCDs only support a single resolution (without scaling) right?

      1. LCD

        no. actually, besides coming WAY down in price (decent 19″ viewable generic = ~$350), LCDs can now perform any task or scale as a CRT. we use them here at work for multi-screen engineering views, etc.
