Can't use 144Hz at 4:3 resolutions.

I try to play a game on 1280 x 1024 strechted in order for this to work i have to change my monitors resolution to 1280 x 1024 aswell (so my desktop is strechted aswell). when i do this however my refresh rate automaticly goes to 59Hz when changing it back to 144Hz my desktop resolution changes to 640 x 480.

Does anyone know how to fix this? i haven't had this issue when i was running a nVIDIA GTX 780 TI.

at the moment i`m using a r9 290x sapphire vapor x.

Yep, a known issue I've had for years.

nobody here seems to know how to fix it.

honestly, the only way i got it to work 100% of the time was turning it down to 120hz
