HDMI gives fuzzy text
Hi been looking at your site for months and was a great resource in my first build.
When I attach a VGA via adapter to the video card, my Window 7 64 Bit control panel sets at 1920 x 1020 and look perfect. Using the HDMI cable, at first the image had a boundary, I fixed that easily using Catalyst, but the text is fuzzy, if I look at a webpage the text is fuzzy but the graphics look mostly correct. I am guesing it has something to do with my Viewsonic, however the supported computer resoultion is not one control panel shows, it shows 1980 x1020, and I have tried using cataylst and setting to 1080i and 720p but no improvement. Any suggestions?

BTW I have looked at most GOOGLE solutions but half them are blaming cables and the others dont seem to apply.

Viewsonic 24" Supported Computer Resolutions 1360 x768 [

Fractal Design XT Titamium
Corsair 6 GB XMS 1333 (should have bought 1666 rookie error)
Asus P7P55D-E PRO
I5-duo 650
Seasonic Bronze 520Watt
Black Cavier 7200RPM Sata3
Pro Color 900 MGHZ 6870

the monitor only supports 1360 x 768? then you should have your resolution set to that value.

Thank you gentlemen
I will try both, although I did try and set resolution without success.

if can also try using vga cable to moniter with a dvi adapter on video card cos DRM is better on vga

Hi Kapt, thats how I run at the moment. The main reason I would want to change is I have the impression that game video is not nearly as good through VGA as HDMI?

you need to set your panel to the native resolution regardless, else it will look like crap.

HDMI is better then VGA in quality usually, but to some it doesn't make a difference.

Thats part of the mystery to me. When I use VGA with native res set to 1920 x 1080 I get a prefect picture. When I use the same setting an HDMI cables I get the underscan image on the screen, and the text is blurry.

Bad HDMI cable maybe?

I dont think so, I used it with a PS3 and a different monitor and no problem. If its possible I think the Viewsonic accepts a analog signal of 1080p but only displays 720p. For some reason the digital signal by HDMI is not getting down to 720P or I have DRM issues, does DRM degrade your signal. However I am only looking at webpages and the Microsoft desktop with a legit WIN 7. I did not have time to try my other monitor. I think Viewsonic has some splanning to do. All their TV have this strange 1080P support but 1380 by 760 PC support.
