I have a 22" monitor that had 1920x1080 resolution on VGA but I recently upgraded to a Radeon 9870 and wanted to try out HDMI. I thought there would be a better picture quality with the HDMI but it actually could not go above a 1400x1050 resolution which I found odd. This is obviously worse than the VGA cable. Is there a way to get a higher res on HDMI or should I go back to VGA?? Thanks!
odd. HDMI should allow for a much higher resolution than that. I'm guessing that is a Radeon 6870 not 9870 (otherwise it makes no sense). Only things that I can think of are Driver issues (always use the latest 12.1 at current) and you can also try another HDMI cable if possible.
