As the title indicates I have this problem.

I recently bought a new graphics card (XFX ATI Radeon HD 7850). I have this monitor:

  • Samsung S22B150
  • 21.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor
  • Gloss Black (1920 x 1080 Full HD, 5ms, VGA)

Up until now, with an AMD A4-3400 APU with Radeon HD 6410D on board graphics card, I was able to have an 1920*1080 screen resolution, as I have in my Windows 7 OS that I don't use that much.

I am using an DVI to VGA adaptor on the graphics card end point, only to connect the graphics card with the monitor, since my monitor does not have an HDMI input.

I have installed the latest driver + Catalyst Center for Ubuntu and the biggest resolution that I can choose is the hefty 1600 x 1200 which somewhat distorts the image, which becomes really tiring as I am using my Ubuntu OS most of the time.

Can someone help me out with this?

PS: Any additional info that one may need should he choose to help me out with this, will be happily supplied.
