Dell XPS L502X 15,6-Zoll HDready Display (1366 x 768 Pixel)
OK, these 1366x768 are the resolution you should use on Windows desktop too, thats the resolution the grafic and text look best/sharp not only at DW.
Please try it out. When the text still blur at this resolution there is maybe another problem. Sure 1366 x 768 isn't much room to view anything, but it is just a small Laptop.

My computer defaults to 125% text size, and I've tried 100% and 150%
Repeating myself, but I tried this on both a 1600x900 and 1920x1080 monitors. Barely any difference in clarify between them.
When you use external monitors, you should change the windows desktop to the resolution of the monitor ! Special with LCD/flatscreen monitor !
You missed my reply I believe. I always run my monitors on their native resolution. I'll say it at length, my 1600 x 900 monitor is set at 1600 x 900 in windows, and my 1920 x 1080 monitor is set to 1920 x 1080 in windows.
Any PC gamer worth his salt will always have it set properly. Who would even want to run his/her monitor at anything else other than the native resolution. It would be like having your monitor set to the wrong refresh rate, very unpleasant for the eyes on some areas of the screen.
I didn't check the font size if it had an impact on the game, but I did notice that only certain text would react to Clear Type setting being turned on/off. Strangely enough only the said blurry text would remain unchanged by toggling that setting on/off. The most prominent blurry text is the pop up tool tips that appear in the diplomacy screen. Those portions of text truly looks as if they are images which are being scaled up/down.
Sadly as the Erik mentioned, I cannot see any changes (positive or negative) by messing with any setting from my Video Card Control panel. AA/AF/AO all have zero impact on the visibility of the text at all.
It's kind of crappy in the end, Matrix can't really do anything about it, and so we are stuck with a partially blurry game. If I'd buy a book and it turn out that 1 of the pages were blurry, I wouldn't want to keep that book, or want a discount on it. At the end price the game comes up to, you'd expect to be able to see everything clear as it should be. :(
