    So I have a ASUS 24 inch monitor, an my GTX960 2gb nearly a year. An just discovered the Output Dynamic Range on the control panel, On every guide I've read an watched no one ever mentions this setting why ? Most of the guides are all about the FPS not the colours, I now find out that Nvidia by default limit the colours using an HDMI cable which looked okay before but changing to Full now transforms my viewing.
    Is it just me or does every body know this ?

    "Description:
    Output dynamic range allows the user to select the dynamic range (16 to 235 or 0-255 for 8bpc) of the output which can preserve shadow and highlight details in the imagery being viewed.​

    "Typical usage scenarios:
    • The Limited (16-235) setting is commonly used by many televisions
    • The Full (0-255) setting may allow more detail in the dark and white areas of some content"

    Nope, never scrolled down far enough to notice that before, so thanks for the tip! Probably need to go through the monitor calibration again.
