    I'm trying to run windows on an iMac at a resolution of 1680x1050 but so far no luck. It seems stuck at 1400x1050.
    Anyone know how to do this? The pixelstretching is driving me nuts.

    After you install the Macintosh drivers from the disc you burn with bootcamp it should allow you to use the monitors native resolution. Mine did at least. You are on a 20" iMac right? I assume you are since the 17" isn't capable of 1680X1050. Actually I don't think it is capable of 1400x1050 for that matter. LOL. Anyway if the BootCamp driver doesn't work you can try Omega's driver from
