Ok, thanks! I found a great guide online, I'm going to do that.

I thought I had posted a guide a couple pages back. Maybe I forgot. But for those of you with ATI cards, check out this guide: http://www.highdefforum.com/gaming-systems/135715-how-downscale-amd-cards-best-anti-aliasing-new-feature-amd-users.html

Hey, I'm stuck, I got the res to 2096 x 1310 while keeping the aspect ratio of 16:10, and the pixel clock under 165 (164.8...). The thing is, when I trie to run it the screen flashes, blacks out, flashes, etc... What should I do?

EDIT: Here's a screenie:

Have you tried setting the timings to automatic? That's what I do and it works without a hitch.

Same problem...

EDIT: Nevermind, misread.

 

EDIT again: That's kind of an odd resolution. How did you come to that number?

I'll have to troubleshoot tomorrow, it's 12:40 here. Here's a link to the guide I was reading: Downsampling: How To

Are you using VGA or DVI/HDMI? A friend of mine had trouble with it because he was using VGA, but with a digital connection it worked.

Started Downscaling, dayum; Borderlands 2 went from fantastic, to delicious. The performance takes a bit of a hit but its not that bad.
Skyrim runs at its usual 50-80 frames and just looks crazy, Downscaling really cleans up some of the blurry textures and gives it a much cleaner realistic look.

Hotline Miami dem pixels get pixelie.

Borderlands really benefits from it since the thick black lines around everything get super jaggy. It's especially bad since the surfaces they show up against are really brightly colored.

Caustic cavern is the testing ground for this.

Sli or crossfire the fastest single gpu card on the planet and maybe. Just maybe

Click "Change Resolution" over on the far left, then "customize" under the box with all your resolutions (near the middle of that screen), then click "Create Custom Resolution" on the right window.

It'll give you this window:



And you just put in the resolution you want. It'll test it, and if the screen goes black for too long, it'll mean it failed, so hit escape. If it changes your resolution, that means it works, and it'll save it as a permanent option.

If 1080p is your native resolution, try 2880x1620. I'd recommend not keeping that resolution as your desktop resolution, since it makes font really hard to read. After that, just set the resolution in all your games and you're good to go.

Thank. But i cant try it frown.gif i can just handle 1080p
