I got myself Samsung P2770HD LCD HDTV monitor and a Radeon Saphire HD 5850 2Gb card.

The graphic card has HDMI, DVI and DP (display port).
My HDTV monitor

I tried connecting my HDTV monitor with a HDMI cable. When it comes to playing movies the result is great but when I look at my desktop its kind of blurry and Im thinking that HDMI isnt the optimal choice when Im using my computer as a computer.

The question is do I purchase a DVI cable and connect to my HDTV monitor and what about the display port (DP)? Can anyone explain what it is?

check the resolution for the HDMI connection. if its like 720 X 480 or something low, even 1280 x 720, it will show text / desktop blurry. try changing to full 1080p in the control centre.

sometimes it will default to the "tv" setting of 480p or 720p and not a "pc" setting
