I recently bought a Dell SX2210 monitor and when i got it I was quite happy with it. After a week I started noticing some weird pixelation in my games. At the beginning I thought that something was wrong with my videocard so I updated my drivers and all that jazz but I still was getting the same problem. The pixelation I'm getting is kinda weird cause I only seem to get it whenever there's movement from the images on the scren OR when i move my eyes across the monitor. If the picture is still then everything looks clean, but movement (mostly horizontal movement, which seems weirder) messes up the images and the pixelation begins to occur. The pixelation is very much noticeable under normal windows apps, but it's really annoying when i'm playing games or watching movies.
I've looked for people with the same problem as me, but I only found two people who had this kind of problem and they never got any good answers.
Does anybody know why this is happening? Is this the way this monitor "work" or should I try to make use of my warranty?
I hope somebody here can help me out.

I am running the native resolution and I'm also using the correct aspect ratio. I also checked non native resolutions and I'm having the same problems with them.
When you connect your pc/card to other monitors, do you use the same cable connected to the Dell or a different one?
Did the Dell come with a cable or are you using a new/old one?
Yeah, I used a new cable that came with the monitor and I used the same cable to test another monitor and when I did the problem was gone, that's why I'm thinking it's my monitor and not my video card. (brand new ATI 5870 btw)
I assume you are using "DVI" rather then vga?
If you have dual dvi on your card, have you tried using the other output?
Yeah, I'm using DVI. My video card do has dual DVI, but the problem stays the same no matter where I plug it.
Does the problem change if you tap on the side/top/back of the monitor?
I found no difference when tapping my monitor.
I still havent tried connecting another computer to the monitor, but I'm probably gonna give it a try today. However I'm still sure it has something to do with my monitor rather than my video card. I'll update the post later after I try plugging my monitor to another computer.
