DVI can support a full HD resolution just fine. However your monitor's native aspect ratio is 16:10 (looked up the monitor you mentioned on google), which is why 1680 x 1050 looks fine on your screen. Full HD i.e 1920 x 1080 is a 16:9 aspect ratio which will not look natural (like you said windowed) on a 16:10 screen. There is no way to get around this on your particular monitor. It is by design. However if you are looking for a higher resolution try using 1920 x 1200.

The monitor's native resolution is 1680x1050, so 1920x1080(1080p) wont work properly or at all.

Your monitor does not support 1080P, in some case it can be forced to go to a higher resolution(not necessary display it as it should though) but considering that your monitor has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and 1080P has an aspect ratio of 16:9, forcing it will look horrible.

Having an HDMI cable will not help your issue, you will have to stick to 1680x1050 or get a monitor that supports full HD.

+1 to the above, different cables will not change anything, if you use HDMI or DVI you will get identical results, 1680x1050 is your native resolution and is what the monitor should run at, if you set it to higher than that (the 1080p) you are attempting, the image will look compressed and bad, if you set it less it will look stretched, so forget about the cabling and keep it running at 1680x1050 or buy a 1080p monitor if you must view at that resolution.
