    I want to add this:

    "
    Do you happen to be using the HDMI connection?

    If using HDMI with an NVIDIA card, it's best to download and use a utility that opens up the full RGB color range to be passed by the video card to the monitor. This is a known problem with NVIDIA and HDMI and makes a world of difference, especially with deep blacks (otherwise they appear washed out and gray)."
