However, it could use 1024 x 768, and I'm sure you can run Counter-Strike in a windowed mode if you were that particular about it. Or, you could just make everything look fat and deal with it.

Yeah, that monitor could give you problems. if you must have widescreen LCD, I really suggust getting one like alvino's that can do resolutions that high. (i think 1605x1200 or something)
Those can do 1280x1024 easy.

1600 x 1200 really isn't a widescreen resolution. True, it is different, but it isn't considered "widescreen". I believe the next widescreen up from 1440 x 900 is something x 1050... Can't remember though.

EDIT: It is 1680 x 1050.

I said "I Think" for a reason.
it turns out to be 1680x1050, which can just barely do 1280x1024.

Plays fine at 2048x1536.

I just went into CS:s and You can change it from normal, to two different widescreen ratios, forgot them already. But non went as high as 1440x900, I don't believe. I'm not going to screenshot all of them

Works fine for me, take a look for yourself:

You need to add it as a custom resolution. It runs in 16:10 widescreen.

Never knew you could add custom resolutions. Cool.
