1280x1024 vs 1366x768

9 replies 327 views Edited Nov 24, 2006
ok i want to know wouldnt 1280x1024 be better than 1366x768, because i was looking at lcds,  they had one that has a ratio that is 16:9 that is 1280x1024 aswell as a 1366x768 that was 16:9 so i dont get what would be better im thinking 1280 lcd over the 1366 because it has more vertical pixels right?
and i thought real widescreen was 1366, i want to know because im going to use this for gaming on my xbox 360
oh and the 1280 lcd doesnt have 1080i or somthin and the 1366 lcd does?
 
i need info on these
which resolution is better and does the hdtv 1080i thing have nething to do with the way the xbox 360 looks?

1366 is widescreen oops, hit enter
as for resolution, it would prolly be better in widescreen if ur using it for 360, since most 360 games are widescreen based

It's native 720p but can display a 1080i signal as well but 1080i looks better on a 1920x1080 screen though.

yes,if u buy a PC LCD Monitor, it will more than likely come with both a DVI and VGA port and u can get the 360 VGA Cable and now u can use it on ur PC Monitor.
