    I just recently bought this Dell monitor: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-5123 along with this video card: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16814140060. I got everything installed and running through the DVI output. My question is this, I've never had a digital monitor, does the picture look kinda grainy compared to analog? The picture is very good, very bright compared to my old analog LCD, but I was wondering if it should look a little grainy? I might just be being picky, but I was expecting a digital picture to be just perfect. If so is there anything that can be done to correct it? Thanks :D

    Did you set the resolution to 1680x1050? If not, it'll look pretty bad. That's the first step to making the picture look good. :)

    Yeah, its set to max res. 1680x1050. Like I said, maybe I'm just being picky. I was just hoping there was something I overlooked. I also have gone through all of the video card settings. Probably just need to get used to the look of digital.
