Games and resolution

hi guys, im curious about my games and it's resolution. Example. my desktop's native resolution is 1680x1050. I play cs 1.6 and i need its resolution at 1024x768 so i can have higher refresh rates. However when i run CS at 1024x768, my monitors settings say im still at 1680x1050. so i cant benefit from higher refresh rates. The game itself does look like it is 1024x768 but my monitor is saying its not. also, i just upgraded from winxp32bit about 10 hours ago and it wasn't like that. Im curious if windows forces its native resolution on everything.
