    When you reduce your resolution to say 1600x900 or 1680x1050 ingame, do you notice alot of blurriness?

    Well I wouldn't change the aspect ratio but going down to 900p does seem noticeable different at first. If I play the game for several minutes to an hour or more, I eventually stop noticing it. It has all to do with the perspective. Considering that, to others (including you) it may look very strange no matter how long you play. If you have access to a 1080p screen, I'd suggest you test it out yourself.

    I do. For some reason when some games run initially, they don't automatically detect native resolution, and I can tell right away.

    You can tell, but it's not the end of the world playing in a lower resolution.

    I would never do it. Would rather lower graphics settings as much as possible before sacrificing native resolution.

    I run 720p sometimes. On my 13" screen it's hard to tell the difference and nothing 2xAA won't fix with much less of a performance hit than running native 1080p with no AA.

    I personally prefer high settings to native resolution. That is just me.

    I'm not a fan of non native resolution. In game characters and objects don't bother me too much, but viewing text at anything other than native resolution is a massive eye sore for me, so subtitles and HUD elements are unacceptable at non native resolution IMO. It may not bother some people, but it annoys me.

    I prefer lowering AA and graphical settings before the resolution.
