I was reading the Guru3D review of the i7 980x and the reviewer had this comment:

"Before playing games, setting up your monitor's contrast & brightness levels is a very important thing to do. I realized recently that a lot of you guys have set up your monitor improperly. How do we know this? Because we receive a couple of emails every now and then telling us that a reader can't distinguish between the benchmark charts (colors) in our reviews. We realized, if that happens, your monitor is not properly setup.

This simple test pattern is evenly spaced from 0 to 255 brightness levels, with no profile embedded. If your monitor is correctly set up, you should be able to distinguish each step, and each step should be roughly visually distinct from its neighbors by the same amount. As well, the dark-end step differences should be about the same as the light-end step differences. Finally, the first step should be completely black."

The scale that he used can be seen here:

I have an Asus VW266H 25.5" LCD with a BFG GTX 285OCFU. Using the Nnvidia control panel I have adjusted and adjusted and can only see 17 levels. The guy said that you should see 255 unique levels, I only see 17!!!!!!!!!

How many do you see?
