GTX 560 can't go past 1360 x 768 resolution

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm not that much of a gamer, so I bought this:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121446


It's great and silent while not gaming, which I needed, but I can't run games like FIFA 12, Far Cry 2, or anything for that matter past this resolution.

My LG screen is 720p and it's recommended desktop resolution is 1360 x 768 and things still look much better than xbox 360 which I'm happy about, but is this normal?

I'm guessing my TV's screen resolution doesn't have to do anything with it, the game should just run more zoomed in or out.
In my case everything is choppy.

Also, is it better to buy another 560 for SLI in about a year? Or sell my current and add a newer one?

it sounds like that's the maximum resolution your monitor will allow you.
(1360x768 is 768p/720p)

as for SLI,
you don't need it.
not with those games at that resolution.

It's your screen that is the issue.

For example, I run a GTX 580 on a 1680x1050 monitor. I can't go higher than that due to the monitor not the card. My card easily scales way higher than that.

You need to invest in a better monitor not a better card.

Seems like you're being limited by your monitor. That is the max resolution it supports.

Thanks guys, I didn't know it would actually slow the game down, I thought it would just run differently.
post #8 of 13
It shouldn't slow your game down any per-say, but it just makes the rest of your system the bottleneck.

IE: if you bought a 1080p TV your performance may stay exactly the same but the card would be running the higher resolution.

Crank up the eye-candy (AA and AF) so your 560 doesn't get bored tongue.gif

EDIT: sorry i didnt see that you were having performance issues. you should fill out a rig, so we can have a better idea of what you're running. here's the link

That's what I'm saying, performance shouldn't be altered that much, right?

Definitely isn't my rig:

Mobo:: Asus P9x79 Pro
CPU: 3930K
Cooler: Noctua D14
Ram: 32gb gskill 1600 (I do film scoring)

I have a 1tb drive my OS and apps are on, over 600gb free space. My second 1tb drive has about 800gbs utilized. I have a SSD I strictly stream heavy sample based libraries from.

Temps are all beautiful, etc etc.


I can't even set the game res to 1366 x 768
