I recently installed a gtx570, everything has been swell...BUUUUT occasionally, when i play a game, and exit out(or tab out), the home screen resolution goes to 800x600 all by itself for some reason....it's happened during witcher, sc2, WoW, and Microsoft flight sim X....it should be noted, that it happens every time i play a NEW game, like, the 1st time i launched WoW, then tabbed out, it happened, the 1st time i played SC2, same thing...it only happens when a game is played for the very 1st time...does not happen again for some reason.

also, another odd question, every time i play the witcher 1...when i close out, windows media center automatically launches.

If its only happening the very first time you play the game then its likely the default resolution that the game booted at was 800x600 once you changed it the game adjusted but windows didnt make the adjustment until you went back to desktop, or in this case, failed to back to its native at all and just stuck with the 800x600 it was told on launch.
