Samsung 19inch 931CW - ubuntu looks fuzzy

xdpyinfo will tell you at which resolution your X server is running.

If you are running at a lower resolution than your monitor, the monitor 
will extrapolate to fill the screen... possibly looking fuzzy.

Check also on your display status what resolution it is running at 
(buttons on the display should lead to displaying that info somewhere).
