Question moniter color

My computers moniter has this odd pink/purple tint, and I was wondering if there was anything that could fix it. I dont know anything that could have caused it to be like that, but I do know we recently put a mad dog brand graphics card in so it would run large games better. any suggestions? i dont really want to switch out another graphics card because putting it in was a hassle since we were previously using an onboard graphics card. please help.

If it happened right when you put the new card in, then that could be the problem.
If at all possible, try another monitor and as a last check, remove the graphics card you added and try it with the old onboard one to see if it produces the same effect. If it does, then it's not the new card.

I would make sure your monitor's video cable is not damaged (I.E., bent pins, etc) and that it is plugged and screwed in all the way.
You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?
