Btw, how do you check the monitors refresh rate? I mean, I can do it in the drivers/windows, but I personally wouldnt rely too much on that tbh.

With crt, the monitor goes in protection, so that shouldn't be a problem
With LCD, you can burn your panel so watch out!

Solved

this procedure work:
Procedure
  1. Download Phoenix.zip and extract it to a working folder.
  2. Run it and click the registry toolbar button.
  3. Click the pencil toolbar button for edit mode.
  4. Change the EDID settings to reflect you display's true capabilities
  5. Pay special attention to the Standard Timings tab.
  6. Detailed Timing blocks 2-4 provide some very interested additional options.
  7. Save the EDID to a .DAT file in the working folder.
  8. Download moninfo.exe and install it.
  9. Open the saved .DAT with MonInfo and make sure it doesn't complain about it
  10. If it does post here for help
  11. If MonInfo reads in an displays the settings the way you configured them in Phoenix then...
  12. Select Create INF... from the file menu and save it to the working folder.
  13. Feel free to edit the strings in the INF to your liking.
  14. Open Start, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.
  15. Select the monitor you want to change, right click and select Update Driver Software
  16. Use the tried and true "Have Disk" method to select the INF and install it.
  17. Reboot and enjoy your new resolution!
, i am happy man now
Thanks to all

Anyways, I have flashed my bios which seems to be working even better. However, when I do put an inf file (Im using the original one actually from the viewsonic cd for my vx2268wm, it works fine) It seems to work for a while and then its like the refresh rate settings are changed. Things that can cause this are a reboot, or that I plug/unplug 1 of my two other monitors/tv.

Any sollution?

Ie windows/ccc dont find that my monitor actually supports other hzs than 60.

Also, I notice this:
Shouldnt 1680x1050 be present in Phoenix(getting the same from softmccs btw)? As you can see those timings are in catalyst control center( same one as in win btw). Also they are non italic which means they are supported by the monitor.
