Same here

Yes, Ive noticed it too. I found out nVidia can use native HDMI-resolution only when a HDMI-display is used alone, dont know about ATI or other adapters. As soon as I connect another display, duplicating desktop or extending it, resolution is dropped to 1680 * 1050.

Anybody out there knows a way to get around this?

Dual display in Win 7
I have a desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate and a laptop running XP Pro. Is there any way to use the laptop as a second monitor? I know how to set it up physically but just don't know if the laptop has to be running the same OS or not.
