Fahrenheit only goes up to 1600x1200.
So if I okay in that resolution, does my monitor downscale the height(1200)?

Or what?

Your monitor will give no image and an out of range message.

I'm playing it in that resolution right now.
It seems like it's playing it well and it looks better than 1280x1024 (the other highest res on this game)

It is being scrunched somewhat as that is a 16.10 res and 1920x1080 is 16.9

You can have your video card stretch it to fit 1920x1080 which looks ugly or have it pillar boxed.

1600x1200 is 4:3, not 16:10.

So it'll just downscale the height to fit in my monitor?
