New rig I just built, old TV is now all pixilated and crappy looking? - Page 2

post #11 of 22

you are running a 29.0-Inch 720p screen its going to look pixilated and crappy depending on how close you are to the screen. My guess is you might be gaming closer to the screen then what you where with the r9-280.

 

Is there a reason why you switched from a R9-280 to a 980ti at 720p you will not notice a different between the cards as you are still locked a 60fps basically.

You're all assuming this is his only monitor, he could have a 4K setup, but only using that TV as a secondary for when he's elsewhere.....

Now, to contribute, I would try different outputs and inputs on both your TV and PC. Since it's a different card, it might not react the same to the same ports as your 280.

Why does it matter what size/resolution his TV is? If it looked fine to him before it should continue to look fine, no?? And while I agree moving to a 980Ti on a 720p screen is a waste. So is buying a Corvette when you already own a Camaro. Maybe he just likes the 980Ti and wanted to own 1.. Again however, I'm thinking it's the fact that he's going from a DVI-D port on the card to a HDMI on the TV. Reubdy, was that the way you had it connected with the 280?

I has a 9600GSO once upon a time, and I used it to play video and it wasn't too bad. Going to a 7950 somehow made 480p videos look blockier and I had to watch 720p vids to get reasonable quality. There might be some settings deep in the configuration and/or registry that might need changing...

One other possibility: Does this TV accept 1080p input but internally modify the image to display it with 720p resolution? I have a Sony that does this and I will say 720p native actually looks a tad blurry, while 1080p downscaled looks better.

woah woah woah who says its bad to own both! biggrin.gif

But to remain on topic, I would attempt to just run a straight HDMI cable to see if that works. If not, are you able to test another type of monitor?

Haha I surely wasn't trying to say owning both is bad! I work in the racing industry, I'd switch cars every other day! And I agree with the HDMI cable or different monitor.

Right, it will probably be RGB limited, which is normal for TVs. Trying a straight hdmi to hdmi cable is the only thing I can think of.
