FX 5900 resolution question
 
I'm wondering if there is any way to set custom resolutions up? I'm looking at a lcd widescreen monitor w/ a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. Doable? Are any wide resolutions available from this card?

Thanks in advance

Download the lattest drivers from nvidia.. remove the old drivers then install the new ones. Once this is done go to control panel and double click on the nvidia control panel icon... from ther click on display then change resolution attributes and scroll back or foreward the slider to 1680 x 1050.. you can also do it via the display properties. I believe the reason it doesnt show up for you is due to having older drivers...

Your welcome.. you will also notice a large increase in graphics perfomance this is probably due to the fx series being more refined latter on... My oldest rig still has a 5950 ultra on it and after upgrading the drivers i was able to play a few games i wasnt able to like fear which was screwed up graphically... Meh although it was anoying it wasnt that bad playing on my old rig that i use as a server while my 7950gx2 were both in rma...

Install the drivers for the monitor.

Your operating system will then know what modes your monitor supports.
