    I play several games that are 1024x768 (ZT2,RCT3,C&C,SC4) Of course on my monitor they are stretched. Even if I change my desktop resolution to "1024x768" or "1024x768 stretched" the desktop is still stretched. Ideas?

    Some LCD screens always stretch the whole image to fit the screen, even when told not to. Others will only use the amount of pixels they are given and fill the rest in as black. Try a LCD screen made by a different manufacture or a CRT monitor to see if the stretch is still there.

    I found the setting on the monitor. It wouldnt show up because the monitor supports 1920x1080 natively. As soon as I set it to 1024x768, it allowed the option to be used to set it properly.
