So I've always gamed with my HD 7850 on the same monitor I'm using right now. I've always been using 1920x1080 resolution. Last week I decided I'm gonna treat myself for x-mas and got an Rx480. It only has the DP ports and DVI-D port along with HDMI port.


My monitor only has VGA and HDMI inputs, so I cannot do the old DVI-I to VGA adapter trick anymore.


Instead I'm now using an HDMI cable from the card to the monitor. Somehow my rx480 thinks I'm on a TV and changed the quality to 1080p video.

This is a huge problem for me as video is darker and 1080p from a pc output looks all fuzzy and weird.


Things I have tried:

* Turning overscan off

* Custom resolution


I'm now on 1600x1200 res so that it knows the source is from a PC and looks fine. I need 1920x1080!!


Halp plz
