GPU BF3 problem

Hey peoples so I just got a brand new card (Sapphire HD 7870 XT) it works great and I love it so far but on bf3 and pretty much all my games so far that I have played it has like a 1 inch black border around it and I really hate it. I have looked up a bunch of things to fix it and none of them work and even tried a program that suppose to resize it to fit and it doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?? I play on a 1080p monitor with an hdmi cord I heard that the hdmi cord is what everyone has this problem with but I don't have a DVI cord what do I do???

More about problem
  1. Check the resolution maybe that's it
  2. No when I go into the game it set for 1080p 60hz refresh and that's what my monitor is set for but I tried scaling my res down and it didn't make any difference the picture always looked the same size and never took the border off
  3. hmm maybe it's your drivers? do you have the most recent ones?
  4. Yes 13.2 beta so I don't know what else to do... I mean the card came with a mini display to an hdmi should I try that and see if that works??
  5. Sure that might work. Sorry I wasn't more help.
  6. If i remember correctly there's a scaling option in catalyst center. Try adjusting it.

    I already tried this and it didn't work sorry for slow replies I don't feel so good so it's hard to get on
  8. In CCC, under "Scaling Options" use the overscan/underscan slider in CCC.

    I have tried this as well I put it to 0 like I read on a forum or something and it did nothing
  10. If you take a screenshot is the borders visible in the picture? Also what monitor do you have? What model?
  11. Are you using an HDMI cable to connect to the monitor? If you are, try swapping it with a DVI cable.
  12. Lol, for some reason I missed the bottom part of your question... Ignore my above post, but I'm pretty sure that's your problem. Best to just live with the black border until you can get to a shop and buy a DVI cable
