Windows 7: Resolution?

01 Aug 2015   #1


Hi not been here in a while. But you might remember that I was having bad shimmering and edges on objects not looking smooth when stood still and ok when moving. Since then I have got a new mother board which I needed as the USB on the board where broken. This happened because I had a usb 360 controller in the front port on my case and when I got up and walked passed I yanked the cable out with my foot and it not been right since then.

I started with a new Graphic card a Asus strix 970 GTX but this didn't solve it on any resolution or graphic setting. I then got a new mother board a Asus H61m-k. Also got a new PSU Cosair HX750I. This didn't solve it either at any resolution.

I had a sony bravia TV 32" 60hz. A couple of days ago I bought a Asus vg278he which is a 144hz at 1080p Any way after receiving this I was this is going to work. But guess what it didn't. It was a lot smoother with no slow downs as be for but the shimmering and objects looking smooth then jaggy. Any way I tried lowering my resolution on the monitor in game to 1600x900. The shimmering stopped which it didn't be for on my old TV. I now can have all graphics on ultra at 144hz on every game I tried with out problem.

Also the screen when at 1600x900 looks to fit better then at 1080p. I no for a fact that this monitor is 1080p so why are things better at lower resolution but look better then 1080p?.

If you changed out your GPU, motherboard, Power supply and TV, and it still didn't correct it...

That leads me to believe that you either have a damaged or poor quality monitor cable. At high resolution rates the information being sent over the cable is a fairly high frequency. Lower resolutions use lower frequencies. A damaged or poorly made cable isn't going to pass the high frequencies well. That might be why the problem goes away at lower resolution.

I would try swapping out the monitor cable and see what that does at better resolutions.

Think I will have to live with it. Done some more research and at 27" 1080p you most likely to have jaggy edges when you move shimmer abit. People say at 27" you should have really a resolution od 1440p.
