Yeah, and lower resolutions and more flicker (lower refresh rates)
usually give sharper images.
I once got rid of a lot of fuzziness by wrapping the video cable with
aluminum foil; which was feasible because it was only a few inches
between the MB and a backpanel connector. But you might consider your
longer video cable routing to keep it as far as possible from RF noise.
I've also seen a montitor get fuzzy when setting too close to a noisy
computer or another monitor.
Another thing that sometimes helps and sometimes hurts is to give your
monitor a good slap.
