How can I fix my CRT display's ghosting?

I just brought home a big o' 21" viewsonic P815 monitor. It didn’t have the monitor cable, so I used a crappy one I had. I’m noticing a lot of odd “shadow” effects, especially with black text on a white background- the text is clear, but there’s a very light grey echo to the right of it, then a lighter echo to the right of that, and so on. It reminds me of cable "ghosting." My question: is it a cable problem or a monitor problem?

If the monitors’s bad, no big loss- it was free- but I don’t want to waste the money on a cable if it won’t make a difference.
Bonus Question: if I do get a cable, will it make a difference which input set I use (the monitor has a standard SVGA jack and seperate RGB BNC connector jacks)?
