    I am currently running 2 monitors. My main is running through a cable splitter so I can hotswap it with my xbox. First of all it wouldn't recognise my monitors native resolution at all so I changed it on nvidia's control panel (GTS 250 Zotac 1GB edition) and it was fine. Until, I came to play any game it won't recognise 1680x1050 and I have the option of 1600x1024 or 1600x1200. My monitor can't display the x1200 res and image quality is horrific on the x1024 res. I have installed every game again to no sucess and it happens on Crysis, Left 4 dead 1 & 2, Counter-Strike: Source, Garry's Mod, Unreal Tournament 1-3, and Modern Warfare 2. If i don't use the splitter its fine but obviously I got it to save time not swapping cables. Any ideas?

    System Info:
    E2140 @ 1.6 ghz
    ECS Livermore8 Intel 945G Socket 775
    2GB DDR2 677mhz
    nVidia GTS 250
    OCZ modXtreme 600w PSU
    320GB Seagate Barracuda
    Window Vista 32bit

    This was bought from pc world and i have added the graphics card and changed case if thats relevant at all.
