Question about 2560 x 1440

Recommended Posts

I currently play DCS World 2.5 using a 1920x1200 monitor, which is a resolution setting that I find in the options menu. I am considering getting a 2560x1440 monitor, but it doesn't look like DCS World 2.5 supports this. Is that correct? In that case, I suppose the monitor would still just show the game at 1920x1200 right (in other words, it would be a waste to upgrade?) Thanks. XJK

Using a 1440p monitor as well. Works perfectly.

Thanks panzerd18, Innerloop, ulmaniac and panton41 for your helpful replies. What I had missed is the aspect ratio for which the DCS options menu has a separate entry. Mine was set to 16:10 (1920x1200). Once I set it to 16:9 (2560x1440) the option showed up. And the graphics card does just fine with it.

2560 x 1440 works great in DCS, you'll love it, the option for the resolution won't show up until the monitor is up and running.

 

Great resolution for gaming in general and it's really nice for DCS. It gives nice detail without the godawful 'straining' that 4K can put on your graphics card.
