ok well i want to play my old games in non wide screen 640*480 800*600 and i have a widescreen monitor

i read ati can support pixel aspect ratio scaling but i dont see it in the CCC panel
i have a viewsonic VA1903wb and 8.9 CCC drivers on a 3870

i also have a VGA cable with a DVI adapter
 
Enter CCC.
Make sure you are on the Advanced view
Select your screen then under "Attributes" select "Enable GPU scaling" and place a check mark on 'Maintain aspect ratio"

Should be like this, remember to apply it

The only other thing i could think of would be to add some resolutions that match the height of the screen to the games.

800 x 600 = 960 x 600 (still 16:10)
640 x 480 = 768 x 480 (Still 16:10)

There is a link on adding more custom resolutions to CCC, with some luck you can run windowed games with your screen at low rez to avoid the small window effect.


Old, but it may still work
