HD Display for Gaming?

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I love the new HD display, as it finally goes to a nice REALLY high rez.. The problem I am seeing though, is it seems to support no standard resolutions.. The ones apple lists are-





This is great for designers, but what about Gamers? I do not know of any of these resolutions being supported even in Quake 3. Unless you do not run your games at full screen, what will gamers do????

    Obviously they will buy normal monitors.

    Lol. I do a bunch of web design personally, and also love to play games... I think I may have to buy a Cinema Display instead of the HD display, because of the resolution problem.. I would LOVE to have the higher rez of the HD, but if I am spending that much, I want to be able to play games on it as well. I have looked into CRT's, but I have both limited space, and CRT's often bother my eyes (even at high refresh rates)....

    1.) Quake 3 has a wide screen preset display option. it's something like 840 X 500 though.

    2.) you can manually set Quake 3 to any screen res through the config file
