Posting some pictures would help us see what you are seeing.
1. Are you connecting with HDMI or DVI cable? Sometime connecting with HDMI creates scaling issues which you would need to adjust in your drivers.
2. Update drivers.
3. Backlight bleeding is one of the shortcomings of LCD monitors. From my experience, inexpensive TN panel monitors like your Asus generally suffers more of these issues than more expensive monitors using VA or IPS panel technologies.
A picture in a dark room with a black background can help determine if the backlight bleeding is excessive when the monitor is set to a default 50 / 50 for brightness and contrast. Not necessarily the best settings, but middle of the road for evaluation purposes.
comes with dvi cable but doesn't fit on the 460 gtx hawk and my 460 box doesn't have an adaptor. only the msi vga adaptor and the hdmi adaptor
well where i circled on the picture is the best i could see on the camera i have. basically i have some pretty massive ghosting.. i.e) on some spots on my monitor if i have the word " monitor" perhaps TOR is ghosted out and has a faded/ghosted look as opposed to MONI
