@daniellange: I know how to use scaling. I mentioned it in the OP.
@zipsi - I'm going to quote my OP because I think you must have missed it.
Originally posted by: HFH_Avenger: I have a black box around my screen (unless I strech it with display scaling), text is fuzzy and the colors are slightly off.
My eyes are picking up something...
Now the only change I've noticed in settings is that my refresh rate is STUCK at 60 and IT CANNOT BE CHANGED. I belive the 59hz setting is more compatible with my display and I am worried that the 6870 doesn't support it.
I tested a couple games I have that I knew had support for 59hz built in, WoW and Spore. Both display full screen with no black box and no text/color distortion when set for 59hz (YAY I know the card supports it now!) but the issues return at 60hz settings. On the other hand Tribes: Ascend does not have a refresh rate selection and defaults to 60hz. It DOES have the afformentioned issues.
Now to figure out why I cannot change the setting in windows or Vision...
