Recently I just got a hold of a really nice monitor. I was looking forward to a larger screen resolution since I've been sticking with a modest 1650x1050 with my old ViewSonic. However, after getting this one set up, it says that it won't go to a higher resolution than that of my previous Monitor. My brother has the same monitor, a less than optimal card from Nvidia, and can get a 1950 x 1200 Resolution or something like that which I assume is max for the monitor.

My card is an AMD Radeon HD 7770. If anyone can give me an idea of what to do so I can get a higher resolution that'd be great. I read that doing a rollback on the driver could do the trick but I'd rather just see if there are any other options before I try that. Cheers!

A good place to start is by letting us know a bit about your machine and what brand and model your monitor is.  What driver version your running etc... see my sig for an example of the type of info that would be useful in helping you figure this out.

Sounds like you are either not using a 60hz refresh rate or you are not using DVI/DP/HDMI

Processor: AMD FX-8120 CPU 8x 3.10Ghz/8MB L2 Cache

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 -- AMD 970

Card: 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7770

PSU: 850 Watt Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2

27" LCD AOC Monitor with 1920x1080 being the optimal res. Model is 2770VH1

Also I did check my refresh rate, it is at 60hz.

I'm not sure if there is a way and how to get the format that you have in your signature so I put it out as is and hope it will be helpful. Tried to dxdiag and that didn't come up with what I wanted. I'm good at building a computer but when it comes to this I'm mind boggled.
