yea that was stupid of me. Posting while my kids were screaming.
I am running:
ASROCK M3A785GMH/128M which has the HD 4200 ATI chipset.
AMD Athlon II 425 Ranan Chip
Thing is, even though the monitor would not support it, shouldn't the listed modes include 1080p? Or does the chipset detect what type of device is connected and limits the resolutions accordingly?
