Re: [PLUG] Which video card to use?

I assume you're talking about a resolution problem (IE, 1280x1024 on a
widescreen monitor), but something to remember, just in case: the aspect
ratio on many programs is set to 16:9 for widescreen fullscreen effect,
however, most computer widescreen resolutions are 16:10 (IE, 1680x1050).
Often adjusting this in graphical preferences of the program can help
