Question new 2ms 120hz montior still blurry?

I got his BenQ XL2410T Monitor with 2ms and 120mz. After 120hz on...go the AMA on (Benq's blurr control thingy), tried some games+video and my blurring is just as bad as it was on my 8 yo old 23ms 60hz ACER monitor.

On the box it says it works with NVIDIA 3D. And comes with "nvidia drivers" to install. I didn't use these because my WinXP auto-installed the monitor and picked a driver and I don't have a nvidia graphics card...these are my specs:

I have "Intel Graphics media accelerator" so I think that's a graphics chip.

Display adapters: Intel(r) G33/G31.
Processor: Pentium dual core CPU E5200 @ 2.5GHZ.
OS: Windows xp.

Would a graphics card or using the drivers that came with the monitor make a big difference with the blurring? Or are all LCDs really just still as blurry as they've always been and the 'response time' thing doesn't really mean anything?

I don't think its your monitor, I think its the fact that you're using on-board graphics.

If you have a video card laying around I'd try it with that.
Or if you don't, bring it to a friend's house that does and check it on their computer.

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.

Or that he doesn't have proper drivers for it.

The only drivers that came with the monitor say "NVIDIA drivers for Gforce graphics card".
I figured if i didn't have a graphics card I wouldn't need those drivers. I don't know what other drivers I would try.

I do happen to have a Geforce card in my old computer but it's from 2001. ASUS GeForce2mx AGP-v7100...I assume even the Intel chip is more powerful than this by now.

About the need to test with a graphics card...would that blur without a card apply to everything? Including just scrolling text, because that's blurry too and I figured that's not a really graphics intensive thing, same with Youtube videos. That's why I thought it had to be the screen.
