G'day I'm currently having problems with screen resolution. I was using a 5670HD radeon on 1920x1080 and it was running fine. I recently put my mates 560 gtx that I bought off him along with a new mobo and when I tried to do 1920x1080 it was all blurry. I bought a hdmi to dvi cable today and when i put it in all the colours seemed washed and the writing isn't crisp. The current settings are 1366x768. Any clue what to do to make it 1920x1080 and run smooth?

Have you tried using just a dvi-dvi cable? And in setting make sure its set to 32-bit and 1920x1080p. You shouldn't have any issues with the gtx560

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Don't use HDMI, I had the same issue a while ago. Use DVI instead.

I'm not a big proponent of of video converter cables.  I'd second what the others have said about using a native DVI only cable.

 

In your post I read that you swapped video cards and motherboards, but don't see a confirmation that you did a fresh installation of Windows.  Did you do a fresh installation of Windows after the gpu - motherboard swap?
