Hi,

I've been having an issue with my graphics card for the past year. The image on my gaming screen looks normal and quite great. The moment I move the camera, the image because SUPER SHARP and you can see an aura around objects. I was told maybe it's ghosting. Upon further investigation using multiple monitors the issue continued. However, the image was stable and all worked well when an HDMI was used. The DisplayPort seem to make the issue occur. The SHARP image and aura around objects worsens during night time in game. I am not sure if this is an issue with my card or settings that need to be adjusted. I've tried help in multiple places to no avail.

Thank you!

What do you mean by super sharp? An image mode, or?

You could try to increase the refresh rate.

I overclocked my monitor to 280. Everything is fast on my computer which is nice. I still get images that become sharp when I move the camera around in games. It's almost like ghosting but it's not ghosting. Every object has an aura around it when I move the camera around especially when the night falls in games. You know when you sharpen your image too much it begins to look too crisp and break apart all grainy? That's how it is when I move around in games. When I stand still all is fine.

How do you know that the problem is the vga? Have you tried a different card or the monitor with a different pc?

That could be the problem can you try to run you Monitor at 120Hz i have heard that if you OC your Monitor you may get some problems like a kind of ghosting and other strange behaviour.

I overclocked my monitor a few days ago to 280. The overlock of the monitor is not the issue. I've tried from 60hz to 280hz the issue is still there. It's not necessary to use another video card because the problem is solved using HDMI. This is not the choice I would like to use. When using the DP, the problem persists. I'm not sure if there's no issue with the video card or the DP ports itself. This problem was here the day I purchased this card. I thought it was normal as it came and went. Recently it's been a major issue. I've even had issues with overheating which suggested to replace the thermal. Upon opening it up, the thermal was a hot mess. Not sure why anyone would paste thermal the way they did. It was very sloppy and unprofessional. That fixed the heating issue. The problem with the "GHOSTING" like issue is still there. The monitor has been ruled out.

Changing the hz does not rule out the monitor. How did you rule it out?
