we rebuilt our computer, ever sine then my monitor colors are not accurate at all when viewed in print or on other computers. I do photo editing and I have a monitor calibration software but it still display the color way to much vibrance/saturation.

I tryed switching from LCD monitir to CRT and still the same problem! but if hook one of the monitir back to the old computer it is fine!

soo what could this be... the video card? PLEASE someone help.. I have got to get this fixed so I can work on my photos. :(
