Yeah guys i really appreciate the help, messed with the screen settings on the actual monitor last night. took it from 16:9 to custom and it all looks perfect.
I was in a pinch when i bought this yesterday. I originally had a 24" acer and it decided to take a leap off my desk while i was in the middle of a project. i wanted to replace it with the new Sam-sung 24" but Best Buy was out of stock. Anyway i would really recommend this monitor to anyone. Looks amazing running anything from drafting programs, mmo's, fps's. for 299$ i would say its a pretty damn good deal too.
