Hmmm, without searching around for threads / posts...

The best thing to do is play the game in the mode the game expects... For most games a resolution of 640x480 doubled is fine. For a small number of games 640x480 is too small and 800x600 is too large. You can use a program called PowerStrip to add custom resolutions like 640x512 or 720x576 which will help (if you video card doesn't already support these modes)

Finally, you could also try using filters to manaully position / stretch the image as to minimise the "black borders".

Here's a good quote from Toni explaining why it's not really possible to have a "generic best fit" position / stretch option:

Never ever forget that most Amiga programs won't fill the TV (or video monitor) screen completely. 95%+ programs have borders.
