P2570HD issues

I have a brand new very powerful PC with 2 Nvidia GE Force GTX 470 cards and this monitor. I have it connected via HDMI at the moment. The text crispness and image vibrancy are clearly lacking compared to my much older Dell monitor and 5 year old video card on my older machine. I suspect the problem relates to the driver although it may relate to connecting via HDMI rather than DVI. I am using Windows 7. It appears the only driver I could load was a PNP driver of some sort though I tried to load the driver that came on the CD with the monitor. I am able to adjust all the settings of the monitor but that has not helped with the basic problem. Can anyone shed light on this issue as I intend to have a 4-monitor system but not Samsung if this image quality persists? Thanks for your thoughts.

Clarification-Samsung monitor

I have 4 different Samsung monitors in my work office and they are fine. This is not an issue of needing to fiddle with controls as I have already done that. The clarity and vibrancy are unacceptable regardless of the adjustments; that is why I think it is an issue of drivers.

The drivers are not from Samsung.

So they may not answer that one. But I do find if I try VGA I get a different quality of display. That's worth a shot and if the display can't be adjusted to your liking, pack and return it as defective.

Try this. Navigate to Menu-Input-Edit Name-HDMI and choose PC. That might help with the text issues.
