    Is it just my LCD monitor, or do LCD's make your games look a little fuzzy? My monitor has a 12ms response time fi that emans anything.

    i bet you a billion dollars that you have it set to something other than it's native res.. do you know it? if not.. just search the manu site with the model #.. should be able to find tech specs for it.. just look at the "Native Resolution".. chances are it's 1280x1024.. and i would run it at that.

    Well, I get this issue with my monitor, it is when I set it to low resolutions, 640x480 for instance.

    Also when it's set at a Hz rate lower than the native (60Hz, 150Hz being the native at 640x480).

    My monitor is a 1998 Dell D1226H monitor.

    I work at Best Buy in comp depart. and from what I see and sell most 15" monitors use 1024x764 native. 17-19" runs a 1280x1024. 21" non widescreen runs 1600x1200. 21" widescreen 1680x1024. Just trying to help.

    Contrast ratio has a lot to do with it as well! What is your contrast ratio? The higher the better. Also, does it support DVI?
    If not, that will not help as well..

    example:
    Contrast Ratio: 450:1

    and what is the pixel pitch?...

    Your 12ms response time may or may not mean to much. What you really need to find out is HOW they performed the response time test. There is no industry standard to determine response time for LCD. This leaves manufactures to "play" with different tests to give the best numbers to marketing. From what I have found there are two ways that companies test for response time.

    Best way:
    How long it takes the LCD to refresh from all black to white to black.

    Poor Way
    How long it takes the LCD to refresh from all black to gray to black.

    If you get an LCD that tests the second method it might say 12ms when in actuality its more like 20ms.
