TV hooked up via HDMI gives a cluttered image.

I want to setup a second screen which is my TV but for that I'll have to hook up my monitor with DVi-D first so before buying the cable I tested my TV with HDMI first, but I was very dissapointed with the results. The screen looks cluttered, even after selecting almost any resolution it still doesn't look as good as how the quality was on my Playstation 3.

The TV is 720p native and easily supports 60hz. I tried changing my screen setting in the AMD Control Center but no justice yet. I don't have any underscan/overscan issues. How do I get a proper image, just like the way it was on my PS3 and Xbox? There are no drivers for my TV to update.


My primary monitor is an IPS 1080p LG screen. Never had any problems with it.

Specs:
i5 4440
AMD R9270
2x4 GB RAM

set it to extended desktop and set it manually to the native tv resolution or change the main display resolution to 720p and leave it as clone. the problem i suspect is it receives 1080p and tries to make the best of it

Right now I can only hook up 1 screen at once, so in this case that's the TV. I assume I can't set it to extended desktop if I use only one screen. Any alternatives to that issue? Or is this easier to fix once I have a DVI-D cable for my monitor so I can set my TV as an extended desktop?
