The monitor will most likely stretch the picture. As discussed on a technical level a few pages back, Indivision AGA MK2 cannot output that high resolution, so your monitor will scale the picture. The amount of "blurrying" depends on the quality of that scaling algorithm. Please note (one more time) that the initial firmware will not support all output modes, and we will not have the config tool available until "sometime later this summer". The config tool will let you add/remove black bars on the edges of your screen, so you can adapt to the panel size of your monitor. If that is a key feature for you, you should not yet buy the unit. If you're fine with a wait for that config tool, you can buy now.

The RGB output will stay active. If you still have a 15kHz or multisync monitor, it will display a mirrored picture. That's the way we're currently developing the flickerfixer here ;-)
