Viewing DVD movie or any avi shows is not clear, pixels are not clear

Hi,

I'm using a P3.0GHZ socket478 PC with ATI 9600 radeon 128mb graphics card, 2GB Dual Channel RAM. The graphics card has a VGA and DVI-D connector.

I was using Samsung Syncmaster 710N 17" LCD monitor on a VGA connector. Today I bought a new 22" LCD monitor - Asus MW221U BLK 22inch WIDE 2MS DVI/VGA,Tilt, Speakers HDCP Support. I changed my view to 1680x1050 for my desktop. My gfx card has VGA and DVI-D, but i connected the dvi-d, there was no output on the monitor. So I connected my monitor's normal VGA to PC and the windows and stuff looks fine. When I play movies in DVD quality, it seems to be lousier than viewing on my previous 17" monitor, some of the pixels looks weird as if it was a pirated movie..

Can someone help me, not sure what settings else i need to do or is my gfx card too low end for this monitor.

You might want to update your video card.  The ATI cards are pretty good for video - just get one that can handle your monitor's native resolution.  It sounds like your machine is beefy enough, you just need to spend a little time configuring it. Make sure you have the latest drivers and double check that DVI connection. Free cables are often worth what you pay for them; but yours could be s solution as simple as setting the right input on the monitor and the right switches in your video driver. Have you tried the utility that ATI gives you for fiddling with the card? How about Powerstrip? Its free, as is the ATI utility.

you can try another DVD player, to see if it comes from the player soft or not:

or look if there are any upgrades for the video card, windows, or DVD movie

Your card, player or monitor is not scaling well.  Your old monitor had a lot less pixels to fill.  I'm assuming you are complaining about performance in full screen mode?  Your new monitor has a lot more pixels to spread the same number of DVD pixels across and something in your chain is not doing a good job of scaling top the new size, probably your player software.  Check the settings in it for appropriate adjustments.  If you don't run you DVD window fullscreeen, can you get a good picture?

You didn't say what dvd player you use; have you fine-tuned its settings?
