Hello My desktop is 4:3 and my laptop is 16:10 ratio. I wonder if any graphic card output 16:9 without strech image. If yes, what are the most common resolutions? I want my game runs on all ratios without distortion, reading sys metrics and changing for propper screen resolution. Thanks in advance

You have to handle this yourself in your application.
Take the aspect ratio into account.

You could check the users desktop resolution and have your game use a resolution with the same ratio. You can pretty much assume the user will have their desktop set to the same ratio their monitor uses(either that or they really like things stretched).
