Ok, I am maybe mistaken, but I was playing around with aspect ratio settings amongst other things, in hope of cranking out a couple more FPS. I had 1280x1024 with the usual aspect ratio 5:4, I change that to 16:9 just for fooling around... and I get a sensible FPS boost. I have a normal, non widescreen monitor; does that mean it's actually drawing less pixels? Anyone willing to confirm or deny?

I don't have it installed and don't know how it handles widescreen FoVs, but if it keeps the horizontal FoV the same then it would have to draw less geometry and textures on the vertical plane when set to a widescreen FoV (I'm assuming you're only changing the FoV and not the resolution).

16:9 would be 1280x720, so yes that's a lower resolution
