Seems that my newly bought HIS R9 270X IceQX2 Turbo Boost is not living up to my expectations.
ASUS M5A78L M LX3 motherboard
AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.5GHz
Direct X Version 11
HIS R9 270X PCIe 3.0 2GB DDR5
Primary monitor LG IPS277(HDMI)
Secondary monitor Samsung Syncmaster 205 BW
Current graphics driver version: 13.12
The reccomended resolution for my primary monitor is 1920x1080. First of all, this option does not show in the catalyst control center. When I use windows screen settings and put it on the reccomended resolution, my desktop screen will appear again after a short black out but it will end up with a large black surronding box. What I am trying to say is that not the entire 27inch of my monitor is being used. Something that really pisses me off
Also, Photoshop is telling me that my color settings are wrong. I have no flying clue how to fix that. I reckon something is wrong with my drivers or the card itself.
Tried the following:
- Reinstall drivers
- Unplugging secondary screen and retrying the 1920x1080
- Tried to do same via HD TV option in catalyst. Same issue when put on 1080p or 1080i.
Please respond, as I'm out of ideas how to solve this irritating issue.
Many thanks in advance.
