Sure.  Setting that option sets the display priority in the memory controller
to the highest possible level. If the MC is still having problems keeping up,
it may be that your system can't handle a monitor that big.

Alternatively, your monitor may not like the set of pll dividers selected by
the driver in this case or spread spectrum settings.  You might try setting the

What link speed and number of lanes are being used for that mode?  Does the
monitor support downspread?

Does the proprietary driver work ok with that monitor?
