Yea so my monitor will only show low resolutions when using DVI. Only workaround I've found is using the VGA cable with a VGA to DVI converter but then Im just back with an analog connection which causes wierd things on all games. The monitor is a Viewsonic VX2025WM.

I suggest you update your video drivers.

Yea they are up to date, any other display works fine. I can force my other monitor into any resolution I want but it says out of range, even though I know what its native is.

Ah, ok. It could be that your GPU is transmitting out of the ideal frequency range for that particular monitor.

 

To try other frequencies:

  • Attach the monitor via the DVI
  • Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  • On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
  • On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate.

Try a couple out, see if you can find a compatible rate. The range for your monitor is 40~85Hz and your resolution is 1680x1050.

Its locked in at 59hz there isn't any other refresh rate. I can change it via Catalyst Control Center but still can't go to its full resolution. I honestly have had this monitor for years and never used the DVI so it could of just been defective from the start.
