    I wonder if the forum can help? i have a geforce 2 64mb,dxr3 card and powerstrip also.Im planning to take the vga out of the graphics card into a projector which has a built in line doubler(but can handle 800 x 600 on the vga input).
    What resolution do i output the dvd at? 800 x 600 at 60hz?

    First try 800x600@60hz.

    Normally a VGA input will disable the onboard doubler effectively bypassing it.

    Once you have that working OK try a 72hz refresh rate.

    This should improve slow Pans across the screen.

    800x600 is a standard resolution so you can set it from the normal display settings. You can set the refresh rate (60/72 Hz) from the advanced display settings.

    CJ - powerstrip is best of achieving resolutions and frequencies not usually available.
    If you can get 800x600 @72Hz in windows display properties, then you don't need powerstrip.

    unless you have a problem positioning 800x600 within the projectored image then you can use powerstip to help position and size it . can be handy to use powerstrip to set up all your resolutiones positioned and sized right then you don't have to mess with the settings on the projector as much
