Hi, I just got me a 9800GTX+, and my native monitor resolution is 1600x900. However, I cannot actually get to this resolution, as when I click it, my monitor tells me it is 1280x960.

I can go over it to 1920x1080, but I would just like to be on 1600x900 if anyone can help me

You should be able to go into the NVIDIA control panel and force it to set that resolution (override EDID data).

VGA goes into a DVI converter which plugs into the PC
