ok so i had an lcd a while back..and i had all my steam games at 1280 X 1024 and now i got a regular 17 inch Dell monitor..and i want to change the resolution settings in gmod and it still says i have an lcd..how do i fix this wat i aslo did was put -h 1600 -w1200 in the launch options..but everything is really large...but about 5 yrs ago..i had a regular big 17 inch monitor and an ati radeon 9800 pro vid card..and i could turn it up to 1600 X 1200 and everything was clear..all the metal fences were all smooth and rendered even when u were far away..it was nice..but now that i have an ati radeon X1600 i want to try that again..but hl still thinks i have an lcd

it depends on how hight the monitors resolution can go.. it will give you the options.. sometimes it lets you set it to resolutions that your monitor cannot handle to it will go to default 800x600.. thats why i think everything is big.. try 1280x1024, or 1024x768
