Okay, So I've gone down to 1080p to 1600x900 to 720p because 1600x900 is unable to run at 60hz refresh for what ever reason. some of these games i'm playing don't play well at higher resolutions but run great at 720p and the games that are fine at higher resolutions i'm able to turn up in game the resolution to 1080p or 1600x900 and it works just fine. my only problem is everything else besides gaming is terrible my desktop looks like crap everythings to big and my web browser(chrome is barely manageable) Yes I've went into where you adjust the resolution in windows and turn the DPI to the lowest setting (100%) I guess I could learn to live with it but if there is some secret to maybe scale some of this stuff down please let me know. and no ctrl+mouse wheel in browser is not going to cut it.

I forgot to mention I have a amd based system with catalyst 13.8 i believe it is.

yea I kind of figured that out shortly after I posted this, anyways I'm curious as to why 1280x720 can run at 60hz as well can 1080p but 1600x900 cannot. thanks for the reply tho.
