How to change screen resolution in Windows 8?

I want to change my resolution to my native screen resolution (1680x1050 60hz) but I don't have that option. instead I have to choose from 800x600, 1024x728, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, and 1920x1440 (at 64hz). How do I change it to my native screen resolution if I don't have the options there?

Sounds like a driver issue, have you installed the latest video drivers for your card, the win 7 drivers worked for my gtx580 under windows 8

I tried installing the monitor drivers but it keeps telling me "windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date." My monitor is a Dell E228WFP.

Did you check your video card drivers As Sedril Asked you to do not your monitor drivers.
