Default can't play games on specific resolutions...

On BF2 and LOTR, the highest resolution in the options, says 1280x960. But my monitor's max is 1280x1024. How can I play these games at 1280x1024? Some of my other games like CSS can play at 1280x1024, but not, BF2 and LOTR.

The games all are different and this has nothing to do with you. The resolutions are so close that it really doesn't matter which. It's just what res the games make available.

I think I understand what you mean, and try checking that the refresh rate settings you choose are supported by your monitor.

Hrm, I have an X1950XT, and my fully patched BF2 allows 1028x1024.... Is the option there, and you can't select it, or is the option completly GONE??

Also, what version of CCC (GPU drivers) are you running? I am on 7.2

I'm on CCC v7.3, and the option for 1280x1024 is not there. The highest option available is 1280x960.
