1920x1080?

Is there a Linux that will allow me to scale it to this rez? If I'm going to Linux, I want it to fit my monitor. Oh BTW: 1080P too? Boy am I asking a lot!

I run my CentOS 5.6 box with KDE 3.5 at 1920x1080.

Linux doesn't do that. Xorg does that. More correctly, your graphics card and driver does that. Yes you can do that with Linux.

Thanks, I was hoping there was. I have a GForce GTX460. Hey, I can just tell the guest system to use the host card, and that would do it, right?

Now you are talking about a virtual machine, that is different. If you we dual booting it would not be a problem.

Well I don't think I want to do a dual booting system. But you know, I may come around to it, and dare somebody to touch my DBS.

If you're using VirtualBox and have its Guest Additions installed, it should be able to use any resolution that the host system can support. Without the Guest Additions you may be restricted to 640x480...
