    19" Widescreen

    Just got my Hanns.G 19" Widescreen monitor very nice but way to big in my opinion.

    Just tried some games, oblivion working great (it haves my native widescreen resolution) but in some older titles like call of Duty the image is all stretchy and i cant find a widescreen compatible resolution.

    So is there anyway to fix this? i was told i the resolution is not that important and i should change the aspect ratio in my graphics card control panel. Had a look but there isnt anything related to this.

    You want to be trying this http://www.widescreengamingforum.com...Games_List_-_C rather than downloading new drivers because they won't help if the game doesn't offer a widescreen option anyway.
