Hey guys. Ausome post.

I have a similar problem since I play in 1440x1080.

Sould I use the same Front port and sync width values for 1440x1080 resolution?

Thanks in advance

Yes, GPU scaling is predictably ultralow lag on modern GPUs -- including fixing overscan.

And relilably lower lag nowadays than monitor scaling.

For any NVIDIA or AMD GPU in the last few years, GPU scaling became more reliably lower lag than monitor lag. Try turning off monitor scaling and using GPU scaling instead.

I greatly appreciated your help but my post/bumb was referring to the custom resolution settings from pox02 at page 1. I'm looking for a smooth custom resolution settings as you can see here:

Reduced resolutions definitely help raise frame rate in some games. When using GPU scaling, one can skip ToastyX CRU and simply type in the numbers in NVIDIA Custom Resolution instead, with the Automatic formula, and simply use the GPU configuration options for stretch and non-stretch modes. Much easier.

ToastyX CRU has its place and is important for many tricks -- especially when trying to force display scaling -- but for simple custom resolution tricks using NVIDIA GPU scaling (or 1:1), you can completely solely use NVIDIA Control Panel.

Yea indeed I used only NVIDIA GPU for custom resolutions in the past. But my new monitor (xn253qp) doesn't activate G-Sync on other resolutions (only native) but with CRU G-Sync is working.

trying to get streched resolution (1440x1080) on gpu scaling but I am unable to get it fit entire screen, (I get blackbars on side) any way to get streched to fit whole screen?

I believe you have to select "fullscreen" scaling in the nvidia control panel, and may or may not have to tick the checkbox under as well :

my windows is in Swedish language but you should be able to work it out I guess from the picture :p

the checkbox at the bottom would be something like "ignore scaling set by games and applications" in English I guess and I don't think this is needed to check if you just select "fullscreen" scaling above it, but maybe it is also needed in some games/apps, either way this should work I think !
