1280x1024 is basically HD already. You don't need to do anything else, just run games at that resolution. DVDs, however, are only at 640x480, so they'll be stretched to fit your screen. Actual HD video is floating around out there, though. Mostly in the form of trailers, or torrented episodes of HD TV programs if you're a bit unscrupulous.
