It's weird - I'll set it to one of the higher resolutions, like 1280x720, but after I quit a game, or perform a reboot, the screenmode prefs still show 1280x720, but the screen LOOKS like default.

I don't think there's any price for it (pistorm) - the boards are open source, so you download the gerber files and build it yourself. Doesn't look like it'd be super expensive.
