    I am new to all of this, and I tried adjusting the resolution and it didn't fix anything. I used the motherboard cd that game with it to install all of the drivers, but the display just looks bad. It is not sharp and looks fuzzy, as well as being stretched. Is there something I should be doing to adjust this?

    Go make sure that you are using a good resolution and refresh rate. Sometimes a little thing like the refresh rate being off can ruin a display. Also, a display that is used to one video card can look bad when plugged into a new video card. I had this problem recently when swapping video cards around and I used the auto-adjust feature on my LCD and it fixed it right away. It's kind of like degauss for CRTs but much safer.
