So I have the new system up and running.
It has 2 nvidia 8600GTS cards(running SLI) and I found something odd.
I can run the desktop resolution at 1680×1050 and 1280×1024, but not 1440×900.

This seemed a little odd, so I went digging, and apparently nvidia dropped 1440 in it’s latest round of drivers.


That’s almost like winamp not playing MP3s that start with the letter W.

I’m sure if I kept digging, then I could find a (to them) reasonable explanation. But to me…it’s just weird.

I was getting used to 1440. It was nice on the eyes.

1680 is a little small, and 1280 is mostly ugly.

I miss 1440.

If I had known, I probably wouldn’t have bought nvidia.

Just weird.

    I agree. That is weird.

    I wonder if it has to do with common LCD monitor resolutions? (That’s my best guess.)

    Congrats on the new machine!

    Yeah, isn’t that the standard LCD wide screen resolution?
