Unless you have a 16:10 widescreen display: because then you can fit the displayed area of 320x200 pixels perfectly filling the entire display while keeping 1:1 pixel aspect ratio (since 320x200 is 16:10-format if the pixels are square).

Ideally would then be a 16:10-display which is a multiple of 320x200 (so you don't have to scale) like 640x400, 960x600 or 1280x800 (=> native resolution of many notebooks).
