Hi everyone,

I just built my entire system with the following:

Asus Rampage II Extreme motherboard
Intel Core i7 (2.66Ghz) cpu
6Gb DDR3 memory
Radeon 5870 gpu
LG 32" 120hz, 1080p HD LCD

I'm using a top-notch hdmi cable to connect my computer to my tv. Unfortunately, the maximum resolution Vista will allow is 1400x1050, far below the 1920x1080 my graphics card and tv should allow. I've installed the drivers for the gpu and mobo, and updated Vista . . . thoughts?

Thanks as always for your help,

Are you getting a picture on your TV?

I remember that my TV would only accept certain resolutions (listed in the manual) before it would display a picture, which then I would set it to the correct resolution (since vista will only let you choose resolutions which your connected display will show).

other than that, I have NOOOO IDEA!!!!!!

Yeah, I'm getting a picture on my TV. In fact, I can change the TV's picture from 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9 and back, but Vista doesn't care.
