I use 1280 16:9 and its ok for me
stretched either 1280 or 1024 if you need the fps, because it fucking works, just play with it for a month
there is no big advantage on 16:9 except the wider fov which will help you in maybe 1 out of 150 matches.
4:3 gives you more fps and if you strech it the models are bigger but overall its just preference.
whatever suits you best, plain and simple.
The one you feel good with.
16:9 I think is better because wider fov (which doesn't help that much)and overall better picture quality.
4:3 with black bars may help you to focus on precise location and gives you more fps (with my computer not much difference)
4:3 streched Everything seems bigger but hitboxes are the same they aren't any larger.Only advantage is more fps.
I used to play with 4:3 streched 1280x960 cause It's just felt right
but nowadays I play with 1920x1080.
I did get used to it and love it!
Counterstrike does not need myn resources! But because of the streched pixels --> bigger enemys, i prefer playing 1280*960 streched
i use 1600x900 not stretched, its because i play on a 27 ich screen
I play 800X600 4:3 :P, why? Because I first played on a laptop which couldn't run a higher res with ok fps. Now I got a better PC and I still used to it, simply because I'm used to it.
1024, id use black bars if i had a wide screen monitor, but this is completely preference, even more so than sensitivity imo.
I think stretching 4:3 will mess with your x:y sensitivity in game. So I always would stick with 4:3 black side bars.
I play with 1024 4:3 just preferente and stretched because I have a 16:10 monitor. If I had a 16:9 I'd use black bars.
1280x960 is actually pretty good. I feel comfortable with it. so do some of the "pro's", lately.
Yeah I am just asking cause I think most pros use 4:3 since they're used to it from 1.6 or Source. But CS:GO is my first CS so I don't have any habits there.
I use 1024 4:3 streched. It makes everything bigger and the game seems to go faster(walking faster etc), making it less boring to play. Your x/y settings get fucked for a while, but after 1 day you will get used to it.
1280 streched feels nice, bigger models/hitboxes and shit but as someone mentioned above, the x/y sens isnt right so 16:9 1280x720 for me
I use 1024x768 stretched because I am used to it =)
is stretching 4:3 res will make fps lower than 4:3 black bars ?
4:3 - 1280x1024 stretched
