To me, as a past Electronic Engineer, this sounds like analog
"ringing"; most likely caused by a poor video cable, or a poor video
cable connection, or a failing component in the video card (seems
unlikely) or a failing monitor (most likely).
Try unplugging and reattaching both ends of your video cable to make
sure the contacts are clean and well seated. If that doesn't fix it
then see if it gets worse over a period of time (months?). If it
gradually gets worse then start planning to buy a new monitor.
