Does it effect your monitor,gpu or gaming performance if u play games on more than native resolution i mean will it lag more?

Do you mean setting higher resolution in game config than what your monitor supports ? Is that possible in most games ??

Apparently , the answer is simple - If you'll increase the number of pixels rendered , it'll definitely increase the tax on GPU and CPU. What I am not sure is about the fact that can you increase resolution on your monitor than what it actually supports and even in case if it does , still I don't find any reasons to support the faith in improvement of graphics quality.

No you can't set your screen resolution more than your Native.:wink:

as it is physically impossible since due to the specific number of pixels

i have a old crt monitor whose resolution is 1024*786 which is its native resolution.But it maximum supports upto 1278*1024 resolution so will it cause lag at 1278*1024 even if i have a high end graphic card?

If your monitor supports, then it will display what ever data is coming from the graphic card. Lag is caused only if a graphic card struggles, not in the monitor. Maybe you may have flickering on your screen with non-native resolutions, but your display can't screw up your display adapter.

It won't lag if you have a high end GPU.
CRT monitors allow you to increase the resolution higher than native which is not possible in LCDs.

What?? Thats a special case. No monitor allows resolution higher than specified.

Okay.. I googled it. It seems you can increase res. But i could not find if it was applicable to all CRT displays.

The question, how?? Any hw tweaks? Or sw only?

Don't know about YouTube, but full hd movies were 1024x768 when i had that CRT. The lg studio works... Damn good color reproduction, almost zero lag.

I miss that monitor.

first of all unlike led screens CRTs don't have a native resolution only max resolution(for typical 17" it is 1280*1024).you can use all supported resolutions upto the max resolution with appropriate refresh rate but commonly used resolution for a 17" monitor is 1024*768@75Hz.
