When I run a game like PrBoom or OpenArena, I can't get fullscreen without upping the game resolution to the desktop resolution which is 1280x1024. If I don't, it appears in a small window in the middle of the screen, surrounded by a black background. I tried this with nv driver as well as nvidia and the problem persists. Games run terrible at 1280x1024, what can I do?

which vid card is this?
also post your xorg conf if possible.

what about Tremulous - does that also fail to run with regular res, if you can give it a shot?

The card is nVidia GeForce 7600 GS. Here's a link to xorg.conf. I just installed Tremulous and the same thing happens, it's in a little window surrounded by black space.

i've got a gf7900, following config works properly for all games i've tried so far incl. the ones with wine/cedega, give it a shot.

on the other hand, i have another puter with diff hardware - if i try to run any games there, as soon as resolution in game exceeds res + refresh rate of the monitor games do run like you said in given resolution but smaller and surrounded by black, so from my point of view it is moni which causes this not vid card.
