HDMI On 1080p Monitor Not Looking Sharp Enough?

Hello,

Last night my dad and I finished building my gaming rig. This morning I hooked it up to my ASUS VE248H 1080p monitor via HDMI into the GPU and installed Windows on it. I don't know if it's because I haven't adjusted to using a 24" screen yet, but text and pictures don't seem quite as sharp as I feel they should, especially the text. It's not hooked up to the internet yet (my dad and I are wiring it through the ceiling) so I haven't been able to test it on a game like Battlefield 3. If it doesn't look sharp there then I will definitely know something is wrong. If something is, what would be causing this? Is Windows not running at 1080p or something? It seems to me that even on my old HP laptop (which I'm typing this on right now) text seems sharper than on the ASUS monitor, which I know is a good monitor, and the GPU is a EVGA GeForce Gtx 770 Superclocked w/Acx cooling, so I know the GPU isn't the problem. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Does the image run off the sides of the screen or leave black bars on the sides/top of the screen?

If so, you may need to adjust the overscan or underscan.

You may also wish to run the ClearType from optimizer in Windows to see if it looks better.

It turns out that it was due to not having the driver from Nvidia installed. Thanks for your help though. :)
