CPU: i5 4440
GPU: R9 270
OS: Windows 8.1

I have a 1920x1080 monitor which works pretty much flawlessly with games that are compatible with the resolution. But as soon as I change it to 1600x900 (AC4 for example) it will display it with black borders around it which shouldn't be the case. It should stretch. Same result when playing older games with a lower 16:9 aspect ratio like FIFA 2005, It's very annoying. I just want it to stretch really but something really easy seems almost impossible.

I tried some fixes, including some AMD CCC tweaks by changing the image scaling without any good results. It's currently stuck at 'scale image to full panel size'.

Anything I could do to make games stretch to full screen instead of having to deal with anything black borders? It should be possible but how? Thanks in advance.

Most games have .ini files that store the game settings, you can often just edit them with notepad to set the resolution to your monitors native res.
