    Is it normal to have to substantially recalibrate a monitor after changing video cards? I switched from an MSI Radeon 4670 to a XFX Radeon HD 5670 card and finding my previous settings are no longer close to the old ones. The monitor settings hadn't changed, but the calibration file (.icm) no longer brings the same results.

    I would not be surprised if the video card drives the monitor differently, especially if you are using the 15 pin VGA connector as this is analogue and a small change in voltage means a large change in picture.

    cheers, Paul

    Using DVI. Don't think many of the upper 5000 series have VGA ports.

    highstream,
    Hello... Yes .. when i changed my video card to ASUS ENGT 240 and installing the new drivers , the resolution settings were all "messed up" Had to redo the settings for the 2nd monitor as well. Regards Fred
