I've been using VGA on my monitor for some time now, found a DVI cable and plugged it in. Everything is working fine (picture is crisper too)

but once I rebooted i noticed there was a 2 inch border around my bios and bootup screen until the OS starts out. is there any way around this?

I dont have this problem with VGA..

Might actually be an issue with your monitor. BIOS resolution generally is much lower than the resolution that you boot up into.

even in the login screen..

almost sounds like your stock windows drivers run until you boot into windows then it loads your GPU drivers, idk

Most bioses and login screens are 4:3 and 16:10 therefore they don't display correctly on 16:9 monitors. That's the best explanation I have. I see it happening because on my 1680x1050 monitor BIOS screen is full, but on my 1920x1080 I have the black border.

The "problem" is with your monitor. It's not scaling as expected. You can try messing with the OSD settings, but I can't promise results.
