This has me entirely baffled. Before I bought this new monitor, this has never happened.
Using my brothers TV with my dads old monitor for dual display worked fine, and the colors never did any kind of "Dynamic Contrast" thing.
I thought it was just the new monitor at first, running through all the settings, turning off anything that might do it.
But then I noticed the other, older monitor darkened too. 

In Catalyst CC is where I reset it. The displays colors get darker, i go into CCC and under Desktop Management, in Desktop color, I just click ANY setting and adjust it a tiny bit, be it gamma, brightness, or contrast, it resets to the normal colors.
I have to do this for both monitors to get both colors to reset. It happens when I play any game, and i see it on the second monitor, the colors darken. Then I Alt-Tab out of the game and theyre darker on my primary display as well.

Not to mention that the secondary monitors resolution gets screwy when i open a game with this new monitor; but i think that's a resolution thing. I can't for the life of me figure out this display color issue. Any help is greatly appreciated

You may have noticed no one is responding really to your question.  You do not provide any information on your OS.  Your video card, or your ' new monitor '.  It makes it very hard to the rest of us to try and help you if you do not provide this information.  It sounds like it could possibly be the drivers, but there could be a fault with the cable have you checked for bent or missing pins? <<<wild guess since we don't have anything to go on.

Sorry, been MIA a few days, working and sleeping.
Youre right i didnt and I apologize i should have known better.
