    As the pixel dimensions of the image that is being rendered by a gpu can be different from the ones from a monitor, I wonder if it is possible to set higher values than allowed by the monitor.

    What I want to achieve is that my gpu renders images at e.g. full hd [1920x1080] even if the monitor's maximum is lower hd [1280x720]. This could be done by downscaling but I don't know how to set this in Windows 7 Home Premium.

    thanks for help!

    See if this will accomplish what you want: http://www.gimespace.com/gms3d.html
    It allows a virtual screen that is bigger than your monitor and the ability to zoom out and see more displayed on the monitor than would normally fit.

    I found out that what I need is downsampling but this is only available natively on nVidia drivers. this sort of sucks now that I have an AMD card

    Wow. That's interesting. I wonder why AMD doesn't allow downsampling?
