Hello All,
I am new to this forum. I am familiar with Forums since I belong to a car forum: www.trailvoy.com. It's been very helpful for me and I've also been able to contribute a great deal. I'm hoping to do the same here.

My issue is a I recently purchased a new monitor: Samsung 23" SyncMaster P2370. I built my computer a while back 4 years ago. I run a Radeon 7000 video card, 1 GB of RAM, Intel P4 CPU 3.4GHz and an INTEL D915PBL.

My issue is that icons and text is a little blurry. Anyway to fix this? Should I buy a new video card? (I'm planning on hooking this up to my cable so I can watch TV on my monitor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
~M

I would get a new video card if i was going to hook my cable up to it. I'm your video card probably has a 32MB or a 64MB ddr memory. There are new graphic cards out there that are 1GB. If you want better picture quality i would upgrade the graphic card especially if your have a LCD monitor

There are many to choose from. I would stick with radeon since you are already know how to work with it. I buy my parts from www.newegg.com. They are good with their prices.
