Default Tons of artifacts :/

Hi, I just got a new monitor, when booting it up in 1900x1200 I get tons of yellow lines (and some blue) all over the monitor. Anyone ever seen anything like this? (bugreport will come if I find out it's not something dumb I'm doing on this end :P)

//edit, when I use the DVI cable I get tons of artifacts, it seems to work with vga (that includes a dvi to vga convertor).

//edit2, looks like I might need a dual link dvi cable? I thought 1920x1200 was within the dvi single spec? Or is it my custom modeline that doesn't work? Will I need to set it to 59hz or something like that?

1920x1200 requires dual link TMDS hardware. Generally speaking, 1600x1200 and higher are dual link TMDS.

Thanks,
Lonni
