In games like 1/2-Life, UT, Quake3, Ulitma 9 etc. whenever I go about changing the resolution my screen goes all over the place, some things cut off and moved over etc. I sort of remember that refresh rate has something to do with it but i dont feel like changing it all the time... also i have a geforceGTS and am running desktop at 1280x1024. thanks

I think that the screen position changes when you change resolutions. It did that to me when I got my 900NF and I thought something was wrong with my monitor but all you have to do is set the screen so it is good in games, then when it comes back to windows, reposition it so it is okay again and next time it should stay fine for the game and windows res.
