Sometimes, finding the right top-notch gaming peripherals can be traumatic. Configuring them even worse, take your graphics card, then your monitor — these can take an age to get right for your personal playing style.
Have you ever wondered in which resolution rain, fallen or s1mple are using? In general, check out what the pros are using is a great idea to find the perfect resolution.
Best Resolution For CSGO
According to the data, 37% of the 421 pro players use the 1280×960 resolution while playing CSGO. The second highest used resolution is the 1024×768 which is used by 27% from the remaining player-base. The most popular 1920×1080 resolution was used only by 9% among the total count of 421 players from the professional scene.
As you can see, the majority of the surveyed players play on with a stretched resolution and the best of the rest have adopted to the Black bars mode. It is strange that there are very, very few players playing native 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratios, despite hardware from the GPU to the Display having those aspect ratios in mind when they are designed.
The mode you use can be adjusted in your Desktop Size settings for your graphics card, on my NVidia panel here it can be found in the “Adjust Desktop Size and position” setting.
Whichever you choose, remember, there are no right or wrong decisions, only the decisions that make your gaming a more fun and comfortable experience.
