What monitor do you have? Does it support DVI?

Check your monitor's own settings to see if it has scaling options. Otherwise, the only two solutions I can think of (besides buying a better graphics card which can handle the native resolution) would be to:
  1. Use a DVI monitor so that you can set your 'scaling' settings in the Nvidia control panel to: Scaling with fixed-aspect ratio or Do not scale.
  2. Play the game in windowed mode so that it doesn't scale up to full screen.

My LCD monitor does not have a DVI port. Windowed mode, of course, runs the game in a windows, of the resolution I have selected in the game. So, it's not very visually appealing. I'm still wondering how I never had this problem 6-7 months back.
