I was just wondering why when i check all the pro configs from the various lan events they all still use 800x600 and the like...when these events all use 120hz lcd with native 1680x1050 res?

Is there something to be gained from having a stretched low resolution picture to a crisp native one i am unaware of? I always thought the reason for low res on crt was to get the 120hz, if you can have that at 1680x1050 why not?

Its a serious question just wondering if there is a reason behind it.
