    Hi guys, wonder if you can help. Just got the above card and when i installed the drivers it first off put my refresh rate to 68Hz which my tft monitor didn`t like and then locked my resolution to 1024x768. I have a 17" tft monitor and i can force it to 1280x1024 using ATI Tray Tools but all my games are stuck at 1024x768. what am i doing wrong? i`ve tried reinstalling the drivers and even reinstalling windows too but always the same. my old 6800GT was fine with this monitor. Oh yeah the card is modded to get the extra pipes but havent seen anyone have this problem. any help would be appreciated as its quite annoying. thanks.:)

    Re-install your monitor driver, may be a communication thing as you have upgraded your card and drivers and you have now confused your monitor!
