    you can use the gfx card features to adjust gamma contrast etc etc , if your running an nvidia card, turn up digital vibrance.

    just tweak away

    If your gfx card supports, use the DVI output. The cable will have white connecters either end. This ensure a digital picture and the best vibrance possible, this of course differs from brand to brand.

    If you are already doing this, then reset to default, select a cool colour mode on tft, and gradually inscrease the settings,

    Some people can't notice a difference between DVI and VGA. I can't!

    There is a massive difference.. opinion based on my own dual 1901fp's (dells) & x800 to a 7800gtx

    i can mess around and i have been doing, but i get one colour looking ok then another is out or the screen is darker than it should be etc. i was just wondering if there was a program to use to setup the colours and brightness and stuff.

    i found that the best way to set up is to tweak the settings on the monitor its self, just looked better to me doing it that way.

    and i also found the dvi to be better than vga, but not by a great amount, just that some things look slightly sharper and slightly more vibrant.

    but each to their own

    There's things such as Monitor Calibration Wizard, but I didn't think it was worth it. It's perhaps important for professional graphic designers and such, but I preferred the custom way personally.

    On my 2001FP I just chose the profile I liked the best and put the RGB numbers into the custom part and tweeked till I was happy. Have fun with the new monitor.

    that probably says more about the quality of the analog in/out on that kit than anything else.
