LG29UM67 21:9 Ultrawide Monitor Help!

Hi guys. I just got this LG 29" 21:9 monitor. I love it. GTA 5 is awesome on it... I'm digging the freesync too. However, some games don't support ultrawide and the display just stretches 1920 x 1080.

I prefer the black bars on the sides vs the stretching. I set gpu scaling and preserve aspect ratio, but it still stretches.

Any Ideas?

I'm sure the specs don't matter but:

I7 4790k

Maximus vii gene

asus R9 290x DC2 4gb

16gb gskill trident x 1886 ddr 3 8-9-9-24

evga supernova 850 watt psu

windows 8.1 64 bit

LG 29UM67 29" 2560 x 1080 freesync ultrawide monitor via displayport


p.s. I tried it with gpu scaling off, center scaling mode, and full panel scaling mode and it stretches every time...

Am I missing something?
