1200 x 1024 looks squished

  1. It seems like a lot of games today have a res option for 1280 x 1024 but not one for 1280 x 960. Since 1280 x 1024 is a 5:4 ratio instead of a standard 4:3 ratio is there some setting that will make it adapt and not look squished on a 4:3 screen? Or is that 5:4 setting for some other type of monitor? I know the squishing is only slight but its still very noticable to me. Thanks.

    5:4 aspect ratios are used on SXGA devices, projectors, plasma screens etc. So you can use 1280x1024 when you buy that 25" plasma display :p

    It's also the native resolution for most 19" and many 17" LCDs.

    I thought the LCD's were wider screens a lot of the time.
