This must be a feature of some of the newer drivers.  I don't have it and I'm still using 285.62

It is well known that GFX cards have an issue of running games at 24Hz instead of 60Hz on HDMI. I had the same problem with my old HD 4850. I'm surprised this problem still exists with GTX cards

I've been on and off the Nvidia drivers loop, so can't say for sure. But it's been there for as long as I personally can remember. This of course only applies to HDMI since a pure DVI connection doesn't support anything else than the full RGB format.

Oh, of course.  So then this is great advice for HDMI users!

This is a really common problem and seems like the number one reason why some people complain about the image quality of Nvidia cards nowadays.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

wow thanks, that fixed the color problem instantly. Still getting crappy FPS on the HDMI monitor so I just swapped the cable out for a dvi one I picked up on the way home from class, solved everything and saved me like $3 when I return this other one. Still thanks for the help, that explained the color problem perfectly.
