Hi, I resently purchased the gigabyte amd radeon HD 6670 video card, i installed the latest drivers (later on some older ones), but I keep getting this problem. The text I see is blurry (My computer, firefox, the menus, the favorites). How can I fix it ? It's not a big issue but after 5-10 minutes my head starts to acke. I tried the support form, but it won`t be available `till the 8th of august.

This is usually caused by either having morphological filtering applied in the CCC (this setting should only be used in games) or your 'clear type' setting in Windows.

edit: To adjust your clear type settings, from your desktop click the 'start' orb, type 'clear type' in the searchbox.

Yeah main culprits - MLAA ( Morphological filtering ) / Surface Format Optimisation in VECC (CCC) and/or MS Clear Type ( Windows settings )..

Even with Morph and AA turned off, and clear type and colors adjusted for maximum clarity, the 6670 was so blurry that I uninstalled it and put my 5570 back in (the 6670 was supposed to be an upgrade for my 5570).What started my quest was finding my 5570 settings were leaving me a bit bleary-eyed as the text and general graphics were a little bit grainy. So I bit the bullet and invested in the 6670, but even after upgrading the driver to 13-1, it was no contest, the 5570 is by far the superior card. But, the 5570 is not without its graininess issues, so, what more can I do to alleviate the graininess that is present in the 5570 card?
