Thread: New Machine - Old Monitor




  1. #1

    Default

    I think I need a new monitor for my new machine. I just built a 3gig machine (see specs below) which is really cool, but some games are way too dark, while Quake is always too wide.
    I tried the custom aspect variables but they no longer work. Now I am thinking "new drivers??" but most everything looks ok - except for IE6 (large fonts, and all white backgnd), and Quake.

    So any suggestions for:
    1) how to find newer drivers for a KOMODO monitor,
    2) a new monitor (I hear CTX is the best)
    3) a fix for the Quake screen being "too wide."

    tia,

    Monitor drivers are hard to come by, your best off getting a new one, you'll get much better quality as well.

    Due to TV's low resolutions, they make regular usage hard at times, even gaming. And not everyones got Video out

    Since when does a monitor cost $500? I can get a nice Viewsonic 19" CRT for under $300. Also, 640X480 as minibubba mentioned, tends to be on HDTV's, which are more expensive than a CRT anyway. Most normal TV's do 320X240 I believe.

    Heck, ya can go to any PC store and pick up a cheapo 17" for under $130
