Hi All, wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to resolve a blurry and distorted display?  No problem with my old 1060 GTX, upgraded to RTX 3070 and now everything is blurry and distorted.  Clean install, all drivers and firmware up to date.  Currently nothing on system others than windows 10 and the necessary drivers.

    Does this issue occur over all the outputs on the card?

    I can only try HMDI, my monitor supports VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs only.  Old monitor yes, worked fine with 1060, however, that was using the DVI interface.

    Sounds like you’ll need to buy a dp out to hdmi in adapter to test the dp outputs.

    I was hopeful at that idea.  My son uses those on his rig.   just went and took one to try.   no change.  still blurry.  will go try one of his monitors next and see what happens   his are newer then mine.

    Sorry to hear a different output didn’t help. Let us know how a different monitor works. Trying a different cable wouldn’t hurt as well.

    Different cable no difference, different monitor was the key.  I went back to old video card and DVI for now until I can get new monitor.  Even though my monitor has HDMI connection it doesn't appear to handle it very well.  Thanks for your time.

    That’s an odd one. I was thinking maybe the display resolution got changed after the 3070 was installed, or something else easily fixable. Anyway, I’m not sure what you’re looking for in a monitor, but I got a ViewSonic XG270QG a couple of months ago. It’s the best monitor I’ve had yet. Just throwing it out there.
