I choosed this resolution because this resolution was the highest resolution
where 100hz is still possible (in windows).
i adjusted the settings of my monitor to fill the dispay area but in that
resolution the screen didn't go enough to the left, there were options in
the driver itself in windows to put it more to the left and in linux i used
xvidtune for this.
