First , excuse my english, Iīm from southamerica.
Second, Iīve been using a GeForce 7100 GS without any problem by years with a Samsung 732N plus (1280x1024). A few days ago Iīve bought a Samsung SA 300 monitor (1366x768 at 60 hz), when Iīve installed the nvidia official driver Iīve notice that the fonts are shown very blurry, for example if you look at an "M" you will see that one vertical line are thicker than the other , and it isnīt clear, like somebody passed the thumb over it. If I use nv or nouveau driver both work perfectly, but with these driver I havenīt got 3D aceleration.
This problem is only with the fonts, the images looks wonderfull.
Have somebody this problem?

Make sure the refresh rate of the monitor in the nvidia control panel is set to the same as it is in windows.

Yes , I ve already done this. And I tried with 60 hz and 75 and the the fonts are terrible. And I ve installed Opensuse and Debian becasuse I have many hard disks at home and always have the same problem.
While I use nouveau driver everything it s Ok but when I install the official driver all the fonts are very difficult to read.

The problems seems to be that the driver canīt be setting 1366x768. The driver horizontal value only can be setting into values that can be divided by 8. Example : 1024/8=128 , 1280/8=160 but 1366/8=170.75. Then the setting can be 1368x768 or 1360x768 and the monitor native resolution is 1366x768 and the difference shows the fonts and the edges of the images very blurry.
I donīt know if the new driver solved this issue.
