Can someone explain me how and you have pictures? I just wanna know and learn something here. I keep thinking i am seeing ghosting but i think it's just a graphic shadow that's all.

Which asus 1080p do you have? if your having a ghosting issue I might be able to help.

I have the VE247 and it has terrible ghosting unless I change a setting in the hidden Menu.

I'm not sure if i am having ghosting at all cuz i don't see anything like the picture you posted but i do notice in one map, the rainy map or somewhere like i can see a small black glow around my gun and my teammate character. I wonder if it has something to do with HBAO being on? Shadows and it just looks soft. I wonder if it's normal. I couldn't take a screenshot cuz print screen just gives me a black screen pic. I tried f12 cuz i know Screenshot folders are in BF3 document but we never got any info what button is for screenshots. Too lazy to download FRAPS but i might have to.

Do tell me the settings anyways but i don't think i am ghosting however. Keep me informed i'm supposed.

turn monitor off, hold in MENU and POWER at the same time and hold it till its on, once its on, press menu again, blue menu will pop up. Scroll down to OD and turn it OFF, this removes ALL the ghosting that plagues this monitor.

What is OD btw? I went ahead and did it and turned it off. Would it make a difference anyways? What does this do? I'm not gonna mess anything up am i? I know i don't see ghosting i'm sure but i figured it wouldn't hurt to turn off the OD anyways?

Try turning off post AA in BF3 it might fix the blurry thing. Also HABO can add the glow effect around things.
