I just installed a new nvidia GTS 250 (inno3D) and am way to excited

Now, the problem is text, its not very readable. I'm on win 7 (dx 11) and i tried configuring cleartype, but it doesn't help. I've installed the drivers too. Anything extra needed?

Thanks

Is your monitor on native resolution?

Yes...

Here's a screenshot of the unreadable text: http://i.imgur.com/2L75q.png

The browser is way readable, some places (like the desktop above) is messy :o

Yeah that looks totally normal to me as well. Are you confusing the text shadows with blur?

Well, its unreadable to me. It was more readable when i was using the intel integrated graphics accelerator...

is this anything i can do to tweak my display settings? i tried the nvidia control panel, nothing out of that

Well since the screenshot is fine but it's not to you, chances are it's a monitor issue. Could be you need to "refresh" the monitor (occasionally mine gets fuzzy after a resolution change, but by cycling the inputs back to DVI it resets the monitor). Possibly you need to update your monitor drivers. Could be the VGA or DVI cable. Could be an option in CCC that I'm not thinking of right now (I'd definitely go through them if I were you)

I changed the refresh rate from 60Hz to 75Hz and it got way better...

But will i have to go to 75Hz? My monitor is an old viewSonic VA712b, will it be fine with that refresh rate or i risk blowing it up?

Um... that's a bit odd... I doubt the monitor is actually capable of displaying over 60Hz so it's wierd that selecting the higher one would fix it. No it won't cause any damage, it shouldn't do anything.

Actually, well this is all wierd to me but anyway:

what if the monitor cannot support it?

Anothing thing i noticed is, on 60Hz, if i press the auto-image adjust button on my monitor, its all centered, but on 75, it doesn't get fixed. Monitor wont support that rate?

NVM, auto adjust works...

Is it fine using this rate on my monitor?

Type this into your location bar Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display

once in there there's a few things that should help you sort out your display issues(such as clear type)
