Nope, technically VGA has no limit, its just the fact the higher the resolution you go the shorter a VGA cable you need to use to not have distortion. Aka anything longer then a 6 foot cable at 1080p or higher won't turn out that great.

After a long sleepless night, i have finally fixed this. I have now got the option to use 1920x1080 by its native resolution.
Solution, all i did was connect my hdmi cable while i was on vga, that way my hdmi got recognized. Then i switched to my hdmi and made that to be my main monitor instead of the vga. Taadaa.

Thanks for all for helping.
