I have a couple of questions: 1) I have a samsung 171v 17"....then i see the samsung 17E2, or what ever its called, but it costs over $1,000 dollars! My speculation is that they are pretty much the same except that the 17E2 has more than just a vga input? Are the display properties basically the same, or does the expensive one look better in its non-native resolutions and have better refresh rates? btw, i tried using the sagestar PS2 VGA convertor for my 171V and it looked crappy as hell. 2) WHAT IS UP WITH "NATIVE RESOLUTIONS"? Why does it look so crappy in lower resolutions? does it digitally zoom it or something? and if so, why can they come up with something with mulit resolutions? 3) WHAT EXACLTY IS A REFRESH RATE? I go into display settings and i check the box that says "hide refresh rates that your monitor cannot display" and the only ones left are 60Hz, 70Hz, and 72Hz. I go with 72Hz because i figure, the bigger the number the better. i only get 30 FPS when playing CS--> is this dependent on my monitor or my video card? in other words, im wondering if my LCD screen can display games past 30 FPS. If i got like a GF MX440, would I get a better frames persecond on my LCD? thanks for any input.
