    Okay the wife bought me two HP (HP2311x) monitors for xmas. I have one monitor connected HDMI and HDMI and the other HDMI to thunderbolt connection....One screen isn't as clear as the other. Is there something Im doing wrong or because of the graphic card this is the best Im going to get?

    Are the resolution on both monitors the same? And if so, which screen isn't as clear? The one via the HDMI or the one via the Thunderbolt/MDP interface?

    The hdmi to hdmi has a resolution resolution of 1920x1080. The second has 1080p (which isn't the clear monitor).

    1080p normally is 1920 x 1080, as that is the HD resolution for 1080p.
    That is also the native resolution of the monitors you have. Maybe it is the adapter from Mini DisplayPort to HDMI that is funky. What exact adapter do you use? Can you link to it?
    Have you played with the different resolutions you get offered in System Preferences > Displays?

    Well the problem was a bad HDMI cable. Once I changed it out and played with the display setting everything looks great now. Thank you for your help :)
