Well that's a blow. Is there any point getting a full HD monitor then, would a lower resolution be better? What does one have to do to completely prevent scaling?

If I bought this expensive monitor I'm looking at and it turnes it it looks just as jaggy as playing at 1280 x 1024… I certainly won't be happy.

Thanks very much for your reply. 'Tis appreciated.
