If you notice in the pics, the squares. Between color transitions, all I see are big square blocks.  When I use my other monitor VS247H-P, colors are transitioned almost seamlessly, so it appears to be a monitor issue.

You've posted a link to three normal looking screen shots. If you have a faulty monitor, a screen shot cannot show that, it's a copy of the memory in your video card.

 

However that would indicate the problem you're seeing is after the screen buffer, which includes the monitor. Have you tried using a different monitor to prove beyond doubt that the monitor is faulty?

It's looking like there must be bit errors in the low light areas. The most basic step will be to prove by substitution if the effect is in the monitor or the output of the video card (or the cable or connectors giving data errors). Assuming you're using DisplayPort, have you confirmed whether the same thing happens using HDMI, or vice-versa?
