Default A monitor question

I built my own PC and I have a Dell 17FPV Ultrasharp with a BFG GeForce 6800 OC, and Nvidia beta drivers. When i watch DVDs, I noticed that a lot of the "shading" ends up looking sort of yellow/pixelly. Everything else looks great, it's just shading and shadowy parts in movies that end up looking sort of crappy. I of course attempted to adjust the coloring through my card's set-up program but the changes did not effect the coloring of the video. This happens with all my DVDs. is this a problem, or just a limitation of ultrasharp flatpanels?

Thanks, dudes.

make sure the refresh rate is at 60hz and use different drivers (www.guru3d.com for all the drivers or www.nvidia.com for the most current WHQL approved driver)

Could it be the Divx drivers? I had to install that separately, of course, to get DVDs to run on my PC. Or would it be the overall video drivers?

With the latest basic drives I had, full-screen video (all video, files AND Dvds) came out with lines and blur spots. The NVidia Beta drivers corrected this problem.

So should I try new divx drivers? Download the non-beta Nvidia drivers?
