I am just curious what other people with similar setups as me use for their screen resolution. My computer is rather new, with an onboard Nvidia video card, one of the GeForce 4 line. I have 512 MB of RAM but 64 MB of it is dedicated to the video card (something which was not advertised but I can deal with it). I have all the Luclin models activated, and my spell effects and sky are set low. The only laggy places are PoK when I first zone or log in, and the Bazaar (of course). Oh, and my monitor is a 17" flat screen (not LCD).
So, my native resolution is 1024x768. It's a good size, but I would like a bit larger resolution. I fiddled around a bit and although the text shrinks I know I can use the /chatfontsize commands to increase that. But have people had very noticeable issues with performance when doing this? Or does the increased viewing area more than make up for a slight increase in lag? Or are there even any stability problems when increasing resolution past the native desktop one? I will often Alt-Tab out of EQ to look something up, or just browse the web during downtime, will different resolutions make a difference?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
