Unless there are mods made, you are not going to see better resolution than max supported. Same goes with wide screen support. Which is one reason why older games are played in windowed mode.

Sometimes you can force a higher resolution by editing the game's ini/cfg/registry. Also, there are some games that you can force a higher resolution using Cheat Engine (which is how we forced higher resolutions in FF13 for a while). Though if none of those methods pan out, the only thing you can do is run at 1920x1080 with 4xSGSSAA. This way, you should get near perfect pixel interpolation, and SGSSAA should help smooth things out.

eh.... KOTOR even at 1080p messes up the UI a bit, and anything higher will probs make it unplayable. Like running Battlefront II at 4K makes the UI elements go all over the place. 1440p is fine tho, but I don't think I tested that in KOTOR. 

Maxwell is still awesome, and so is X58. If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 


Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.
