Talking My New Samsung 2232GW

Well, after alot of thinking...I finally switched from my 21" Dell Trinitron CRT to this 22" Samsung Widescreen LCD.

I hope I am going to like it....so far so good.

How can I get all my games to play widescreen format, do I go somewhere to get patches?

Here is my new baby....thanks for all the help answering my questions on lcd's also guys...it is much appreciated.

I went from this:

nice improvement man.
and theres no patch...just change the resolution in the video options.
some games you will have to change the screen format from 4:3 to 16:10

Congrats, major upgrade. And yes, games from 2005 and up have native widescreen support.

So far so good on the 2 wire router...had to pitch the HPNA adapter that my son used to share the network however...that thing dropped the internet connection constantly.

How can I make my older games display in widescreen??

Also, how can I take a screenshot in widescreen....seems hitting print screen , windows still saves it at 4:3 ratio
