I have a 17" Philips CRT monitor and a XFX 9800GT 1Gb graphics card.My problem is that I can't use any resolution on games above 1024X768.If I use them the screen becomes small.The same thing happens on desktop resolution.Is this normal?I thought a 17" monitor supports resolution upto 1280X1024.

A model number would help, but unless it's a good one, or a Trinitron class, it probably maxes out at 1280x1024 (I'd use 1280x960 instead since it matches the aspect ratio of your monitor), or if it is a decent one, maybe 1600x1200. Resolution support isn't tied to monitor size, although the latter is a factor of the former.

It simply sounds like you need to adjust the vertical and horizontal controls though. I've never had one get really small on me though. It usually only needed stretched just a small bit.
