Question Grainy resolutions

Hey, my Samsung 997 DF monitor has alot of resolutions. On the lower ones it looks grainy, like i can see the pixels. Its been like that ever since i have had it, when its on high resolutions it looks just fine...what gives?

Windows XP/Mac OSX 10.5

Higher resolution = more pixels on the screen, and visa-versa. So like TheMajor said, what you're seeing on low res' is normal.
