    A buddy in Canada asked me something and i just cant figure it out!!!! he was lucky enough to be upgraded to a 1950XTX when his 1900 purchace was out of stock(green with envy). He is still trying to use his old monitor ,a IBM P275 ,which is a Sony trinitron flat screen monitor. The issue is a guy at IBM told him to force the HD in the CCC. Now it also states when forcing them it may screw up his display .

    here's the question ......what is the safe mode (720-1080)????? as i dont want to be that guy...lol(the one who breaks others stuff)

    plz help as he wants to see if HD is available:banghead:

    what sort of cable is he using, VGA (D-Sub) or DVI. If hes just using a VGA cable I dont think its worth him even trying HD on it.
