  1. Quick question, i am using a ATI radeon 700064mb pci and i was wondering what is the difference between, Display:

    Plug and play = (name of card)

    and

    Default plug and play = (name of card)

    What happens when i put it on default, more graphics, sound better, faster load times , what?

    thanks.

    Hi U2K,
    My guess is probably nothing. If the default means regarding a monitor that doesn't return a plug and play code to the os, it only allows the most common refresh rates at common resolutions.
    If the card identifies the monitor properly, it should disable any resolutions or refresh rates that that specific mon can't or shouldn't run.

    Just my .02
