I know if you set the games 3d config up to run a certain resolution the game will base it's fps on that setting. however if one were to right click on the desktop and change the screen resolution to a higher res. would the game run with lower fps, or would it still believe it's running in whatever setting I chose in the games 3d config... The reason I ask is because Running on my computer's monitor with game settings at 800x600x16 with my monitors setting at 1024x768 i get one frame rate. but when I connect to my hdtv which uses a higher resolution setting but leaving the games 3d settings the same the frames drop by about 20. is this the result of my games 3d settings or the result of my tv having a higher resolution?
