Anyone using an X-1, ATI component out and HTPC for gaming? What resolution are you using? What works best for desktop and games or are you switching for games?

BTW, it's on a 16:9 92" screen

FWIW I connect to the X1 with VGA cable and run at 1024x768. I think it looks just as good at that res with games and movies as at 800x600.


The scaling from native 800x600 to 1024x768 only affects text, and icons on the desktop from what I can see.


I'm not for sure but the VGA should be better than the component out. I use a VGA switch box between projector and monitor. The X1 also has a VGA pass-through.


I have not messed with Powerstrip or tried to play wide-screen games because I'm to busy.


Since the X1 is 4x3, I have a 96" 4x3 screen and set the X1 to 4x3 and let the computer send whatever aspect ratio it wants to. Works well for DVD's.
