According to the page it only supports up to that resolution for "computer connections" so you gotta use HDMI instead of vga to get 1080p.
Sorry for the long delay on answering this, but yes i have tried to use the HDMI and i achieved 1080p BUT the image quality was crappy.
So, is this like forcing it to use 1080p?
Update your drivers with the guide in my sig.

you have to be able to feed it a 1080P signal over the HDMI just because you use the HDMI cable it does not mean your getting 1080P send it signal from a game or a Blu-Ray then you will see 1080P that's the thing with 1080P HDTV's they can tend to not look so good when given less than a 1080P signal
