Default Fuzzy Display,..is it Monitor or Vid Card?

Okay, well here it is. My top quarter(approx) horizontally part of my monitor is somewhat fuzzy, like at the top of IE windows and ect, the text is hard to read, even in the adress bar, mainly in the top left hand corner, i can see small wavy lines through the screen if i look hard enough. Im wondering if this is either my monitor or my vid card. hopefully just the monitor due to having a decent priced vid card. .. any way to fix this? or should i just buck up and buy a LCD? or say a flat CRT.. i know its only the top half of the monitor mainly becasue when i drag the window down the text becomes more solid/sharp. i had to turn the contrast down to make it read able.
thanks

Make sure that nothing with a magnet is near your monitor (or even an electric motor). You could also try degaussing your monitor.
