Amazon.com: Acer G257HU smidpx 25-Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) Widescreen Monitor: Computers & Accessories

Load it up... picture quite simply sucks. Colors are super saturated and cartoony looking, and it seems to feel like it is displaying at a smaller resolution than I have it set on (icons larger, fuzzy, etc). I have tried using dvi, dp and hdmi cables, and playing with picture settings a bunch (both in nvidia drivers and on the display, but with no luck.

Weird thing is I remember a very similar problem happening to me a while back with a qnix monitor I had, however in this case it was dvi derping, and hdmi looked fine. Any ideas?

Frankly this thing is actually really hurting my eyes right now.

Try the drivers for the monitor unless you have installed them already. Link: Download Drivers and Manuals | Acer Official Site
