One monitor is perfectly lit while the other monitor has a yellowish tint to it?

I've recently bought a brand new monitor for my computer, its a copy of the one I have had and I am trying to use two monitors right now. Well my video card is a gtx 780 and I've heard its strong enough to run two monitors. While one is plugged into a DVI socket, the other is plugged into an HDMI one. The HDMI one has the yellowish tint. Is there anyway to where I can make both monitors the same brightness instead of just one being bright and the other yellowish?

I have no direct experience with either of those.
 


Every monitor that comes out of the factory is a little bit different.
Often they behave differently for different inputs too.
Your graphics card isn't the problem.
You need to adjust the settings of each monitor using the monitor's configuration menu.
Only computer open mspaint and just draw rectangles in a vertical line red, blue and yellow, white and black.
Drag this so that each rectangle is half on the left monitor and half on the right.
Now open your monitor's configuration menu and adjust brightness, contrast and colours until the two monitors look the same and so that each of the colours looks right.

Are there other options? I looked up color calibrator on newegg and got nothing and when I searched up that I found it was a discontinued product.

Well the monitor which has the perfect color is connected to the DVI port, and the one that is off is connected to the HDMI port. Is there a way to which I could add another DVI port so that I can have 2 DVI's and therefore able to connect the two monitors into the 2 DVI ports and solve the issue?

Also, both the monitors have the same setting (color, gamma, contrast, EVERYTHING is identical) and the one that isn't plugged into a DVI port is yellowish. I think If I had two DVI ports they both would be bright and white as usual?

Have you tried using the nvidia control panel to select the second monitor and fiddle with the color,hue, contrast and brightness. I used it to totally make an ancient LCD work as a second monitor. Right-click your desktop to quickly get to the nvidia control panel.
 


You may have to use different settings on each monitor to get the same output.

I figured that would be true so I did try and mess with the settings in the nvidia control panel, but I still can not get the exact same brightness/hue as my other monitor. I'll see if the color calibrator will work.
