Question Some Games Appear Blurry Even though I have high spec hardware

I have around 5 games that I play and all of them perform and run great. However 2 of the games, Ark Survival and Rust, seem to be extremely blurry and pixelated. I have all the latest drivers, directx, and nothing is wrong with my hardware since it performs like it should. I already refunded Ark, but having the same issue with rust I see this is a problem on my end. Please help. (I built this computer myself and cooling isn’t an issue.)

Specs:
-Msi Rtx 2080
- Intel i7 8700k
-Trident Gskill 32gb (2x16) 3200 ram
-EVGA 600 watt PSU
-Samsung 970 1Tb (Which I ran tests and is performing worse than it should, 17th percentile using userbenchmark)
-ASUS z390 motherboard
-1920x1080 Asus 24’ monitor
-Windows 10

Games That Run and look fine:
-Arma 3
-Company of Heroes 2
-CSGO

this sounds like to me display scaling. in your desktop resolution settings, you might have scaling set to something higher than 100%.

if this is the case, one of two things will fix this...

A.) set the scaling to 100%.

B.) find the game executable, right click and go to properties. go to compatibility tab and Change high DPI settings. set it to Application.

Internet explorer is also blurry and pixelated so I would guess that it would be a display scaling issue however it appears to be at 100% so I have no idea

This is a possible cause..

"Much like the original poster, I was switching from a 24" monitor to a 32". For convenience, I re-used the single-link DVI cable already connected to my computer. But as it turns out, single-link DVI cables support resolutions only up to 1920x1200@60Hz. Whereas dual-link DVI cables support resolutions up to 2560×1600@60Hz. So in my case, it was a hardware problem and swapping out the cable with the correct type was the fix. Cables are easy to overlook".

I am using a hdmi cable that can support up to 4K, so I don’t think that is the problem either. And this pixelated ness isn’t the case for 3 of the games I play, but it is for the other 2 games.
