Non-Smooth Gradients on Multiple Monitors and Computers

I have two computers which both have Samsung Monitors and Nvidia discrete graphics cards and often when I am web browsing or watching videos or playing games I notice that the gradients are not smooth but rather some where along the line the gradient gets split into large bars of colour with noticeable differences between each bar. The newer samsung monitor used to be connected to a HP Envy desktop PC which had an ATI (Now AMD) graphics card in and I didn't notice this issue, it was only when I switched to a new computer because the graphics card kept dieing that I noticed it, this time the graphics card was Nvidia. Am I drawing a false connection or is there more going on behind the scenes??
Thanks

Color production when using gpu acceleration on nVidia hardware is very lossy, and most noticeable when changing from AMD hardware.
What program do you notice this in? Photoshop?

Generally I notice it when using the steam store and when looking at shadows in games.
