Default Blurry, Fuzzy text in games after installing Catalyst 10.12.

I am not sure if anyone else have this problem. But ever since I installed Catalyst 10.12 my text in game became kind of blurry/fuzzy. The text on MS Word and google chrome are still crystal clear. However in games such as Guild Wars and Starcraft II the text are blurry/fuzzy. It is making it hard to read the text on the high resolution that I am running at (1600/1200).

When I was still using 10.10 the texts looked fine at this resolution. I use a CRT monitor MAG 996PF that is working fine.

Thx. That fixed the problem. Reading up on MLAA I think I know what is going on. Since MLAA is a post rendering AA it mixes the text with the background.

The performance, when compared with standard AA, is impressive. However the draw back is the blurring of the texts in game.

Blurring in older games, hopefully Devs will put the text in the right spot for this "new" AA.

Caveman:
I thought MLAA was NOT supposed to work with XP, because it used some directcompute thing...?

In my XP install, it apparently works just fine...?
