For starters, get a dual link DVI-D cable, do NOT use HDMI on that monitor or you completely lose it's advantage of 120hz. HDMI 1.4a and below (that monitor is not 1.4b) cannot display at 120hz. If you want to use 3D Vision on it, you have to have the kit and you have to use dual link DVI-D. HDMI will only be useful for movies and maybe playstation.

The reason the screen is not taking up the whole area is due to scaling. HDMI connections usually come with down scaling because that is how most TV's work. You can adjust that through the monitor settings, or in the Nvidia control panel (or CCC, but I hope you don't have AMD with that monitor).

Well THERE's your problem! (Aside from your grammar, overpriced, badly built computer, and belief that a closed-loop liquid cooler is better than an air cooler.)

HDMI is a TV gimmick - just like how 720p is supposedly "HD."

It isn't, contrary to what everyone believes, ANY better picture quality than DVI - it's just DVI with sound... and less image options.

You need a dual-link DVI cable - the one that has pins with no gap.
