I have a GX280 Desktop (3GHZ, 2GB RAM). I have bought a viewsonic 19" LCD Monitor (it has only VGA interface and supports 1400x900). When I play a DVD movie on this system (Full Screen), the quality is not very good. Can you please advise if installing a new Graphics card will help improve the quality of picture (I do not play Games on this PC)? If yes then please advise which Graphics card should I buy? I'll be highly grateful for your kind advice.
Also, actually check what your resolution is set to. My parents bought a Samsung Syncmaster capable of 1680x1050, but it defaulted to a lower resolution when they hooked it up. The fact that it may not be running at its native resolution could result in your low picture quality.
Yes I have bought this monitor few weeks ago. Its spec says that it supports 1400 X 900. I have set the Onboard graphics card settings to 1400 x 900 as well. If I do not play the DVD in full screen mode then the quality is okay but if I play full screen video then the image is a little bit blurred... I'll try other resolution settings as well to see if it makes any diference.
BUT please advise if installing a Graphics card in this GX280 would make any improvement in the quality of video, if yes, then which one would you recommend.
