PC Monitor Information
This card gives the greatest benefit when used with CRT monitors and is
not intended for running power-hungry games at very high PC monitor
resolutions. Its important to note that LCD monitors will not give a
picture which is identical to an original CRT monitor as the picture
resolution will be superimposed on that of the actual LCD panel. So,
what exactly is the difference in quality when using a PCmonitor
between the ArcadeVGA running at the native resolution and an ordinary
card running Direct 3D stretching?
The difference actually depends on what types of games you play. The
most striking improvement is with older, classic games which have
"graphics ROM" type character sprites such as Galaga, Pacman, Space
Invaders and the like. The difference is clear.
Pictorial graphics of later games show an improvement in sharpness with
no loss of detail, giving a picture where you can see each individual
pixel of the original. On this typeof game it is a matter of taste as
to whether you prefer this level of sharpness against a Direct3D
picture which slightly blurs and softens the edges.

Direct3D enabled, auto resolution.
This picture shows the same game with a fixed resolution of 352 X 288.
No stretch nor Direct3D
