Default Is this the graphics cards fault??

Hi, My background is kinda blurry as you can se in the pic, and my icons are rough edges and pixelated. I currently have a crappy graphics card built into my mobo. Would a new G Card solve this problem?

You mean you have graphics built into your motherboard, not modem. You probably just need to set your resolution higher.

not hard to install at all but it looks to me like your color quality is in 16 bit mode.

what's your color depth and resolution? It's hard to see in your picture but it could just be a driver and/or settings issue. A blurry screen could be a bad monitor but the pixelation is probably software related.
