Default BenQ XL2720Z Issue

Hey guys,

Tyson here, just wondering if you can help me out with a "little" problem.

I purchased a XL2720Z Gaming monitor which should be able to run at 120-144hz (I am using a DVI-D cable) and in settings it only lets me choose up to 60hz.

I am trying to change the framerate in AMD catalyst control centre but I am not sure how and when I tried it changed the resolution to 720P (I need to use 1080P).

Anyway I am clueless as to what to do, by the way I am running Windows 7, using a 7970 and all of my drivers are up to date.

Thanks guys.

Make sure you're using dual link DVI or use an HDMI cable.
