nvm, i fixed the problem.
Just if anybody wants to know how i solved it for my setup.
It was a problem in my catalyst driver settings. Since the UI is terible, took a while for me to figure it out. But, if you go to
desktop and display ---> right click the small monitor button on the left --> configure --> pixel format tab ---> i forgot what mine was set to, but i chose 4:4:4 RGB FULL and the picture quality is similar.
