Custom Screen Resolutions?

My GeForce card recently broke (and as I have a new computer on the way, there's no need to buy a new gfx card) So I'm stuck with a 4MB PCI ATI card, which in all fairness, is doing a grand job ;)

My only problem at the moment is the resolutions that it gives me are 800x600 / 1024x768 / 1280x1024 / 1152x864 / 1600x1200
Is there any way that I can get my screen resolution to 1280x960, via registry tweak or seperate app, or anyting at all ? :)

why do u want an off res like that? makes everything elongated.

anyway u need to check if the video card can even run a res like that see if u can find that card on the ati web site they usally list what the card can and can't do. and if it doesn't try changin your monitor drivers to some generic ones and see if the res u want pops up. other then that I don't know about a reg hack or anything like that.

isnt there a tick box for hide resolutions my monitor or graphics card cant display or am I getting this confused with something else.

That's refresh rate Geffy ;)

Krux, 1280x960 is the correct ratio for display resolution. Personally i hate 1280x1024, it seems to be an accepted stadard, but its a horrible ratio.

640x480
800x600
1024x768
1280x960
1600x1200

All have the 4:3 ratio.

I'll have a look around the ATI website and see what i come up with (i think i've looked before..doing it again cant do any harm tho :p ) just fot reference the card comes up with "ATI Technologies, Inc. 3D RAGE PRO PCI" in hardware manager.

Doesnt RefreshForce allow custom resolutions, I think it does, your card may be ok with the refresh rates (as its an old one), but it might be worth checking. ??:)??

I think this one will do it but you have to do it every reboot.

To Get All Monitor Resolutions

Control Panel\Display\Settings\Advanced\Adapter\List All Modes\640 by 480 @ Refresh.

SPeedY_B, I don't think that Vid Card supports that particular resolution.

It will go as high as 1600x1200, but the color will suck. And that is pushing it... Seriously pushing it.

1024 X 768 is best for that card with 16 bit color... barely. :cool:


Just wait for the new System. :p

1280x1024 is barely noticeable to 960.

Why did they even do that btw?

I used to use 1280x1024... Now i got a 19" @ 1600 =)
