So I bought a new monitor and got it today, fired it up etc etc and I noticed a weird issue in my games. It seemed like everything had a slight ghost like shadow behind it when moving, so after looking it up I am now discovering "Ghosting". Is there any way to fix this, or is this some sort of defect I would be stuck with no matter what using this monitor? The monitor is the Acer R240HY.

Thanks!

Hey, man. If you're still having this problem, I highly suggest you disable the OD (Overdrive) option in the monitor settings menu (the section with the wrench icon). I have this exact monitor and I thought the ghosting was because of the response time, but this completeley got rid of the issue. Hope this helps.
