    If you're using a program in fullscreen mode, i.e. game, that doesn't support a widescreen resolution, what happens to the picture? Does it get stretched to fit the screen, or will there be black bars on the sides?

    you can do either. I stretch the picture, but I also have the option to black bar it.

    depends on the monitor too. some monitors will always stretch a 4:3 full screen resolution.
