Default Maintaining 4:3 aspect ratio with widescreen for older games?

I was able to maintain the 4:3 aspect ratio on my laptop I remember, but I'm not sure exactly how to do it using this desktop. My specs are in my sig.

Thanks!

Not sure exactly where, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna be somewhere in nVidia Control Panel.

Yep, or your monitor may do it, try the OSD.

On Screen Display. It's the monitor's menu.

I don't see anything that would maintain the 4:3 ratio, anything I should be looking for? For some reason, it's not in the nvidia CP.
