    This monitor is run by my Dell XPS 600 PC, 955ee processor and dual Geforce 7800 GTX cards. While the colors are crisp and sharp the picture is somewhat distortated. Circles are egged shaped and the vertical pictures are fairly compressed. This is at any resoultion. Is there some way to adjust that or is it a monitor problem?
    Thanks for your input.

    This is on an LCD monitor? I've never heard of that happening, have you tried it on a different computer? Is it running on the DVI or VGA port?

    Yes. Flat panel LCD. Only 1 week old. Running in DVI mode.

    I'm going to have to think the monitor has an issue. I'd try it on a different computer before I mad the final call...

    The only resolution you should be using is 2560 x 1600, the "native resolution"

    As it's a widescreen format, circles will appear distorted.

    What resolution are you using?

    Gee, I didn't lookup the monitor, didn't realize it was a widescreen. :eek: Makes perfect sense now. :D
