Neither will anyone in their right mind run a game on 2303x1440.
And 1280x1024 resolution is plenty. 1600x1200 may look better, but you suffer performance loss.
1280x1024 w/8xAA 16xAF > 1600x1200 CRT. The performance would be better too, since you cut your FPS in half going from 1280x1024 to 1600x1200. On top of that, for $200 off eBay, you can get a 4ms LCD monitor, so picture quality and ghosting are not a problem. A win-win situation.
