I run 2 displays. My main one I run through hdmi and the 2nd through old vga. I USED to run a Nvidia GTX460 and things were fantastic. Looked great, etc. Anyhow, it died and I went out and got this 7870. Now my main display looks TOO sharp. Almost like it's running unsharp mask over my display. It's everything. Not just an explorer window but all text, my desktop background, icons, everything. Fonts look really odd too. Parts of them look too fat, things arn't quite lined up like they were. Nothing looks as 'smooth' as it was with my old card. I've noticed that the brightness seems to be higher as well. I've gone through the standard monitor calibration and cleartext routines and nothing seems to help. It's almost uncomfortable to look at.
