Running Counter Strike 640x480 on a CRT Monitor

Hey, i installed the Windows 7 RC1 and have a problem. I am using a Samsung Syncmaster 959nf CRT monitor in the 640x480 resolution when playing Counter Strike. The image is extremely blurry, much like if you run non native resolutions on a lcd monitor. Are there any workarounds for this?

Update.

I have now tried quite a few vista drivers as well. They are not blurry like the Windows7 nvidia drivers. They flicker a lot though. Forgot to mention im using a Geforce 8800 GT. Both the blurring and the flickering appear in OpenGL only not in D3D, but the game doesnt run very well in D3D.

It's not well to run the game in d3d. Try using XP drivers, it works perfectly for me with XP drivers... btw try reforce, it's smooths the game a lot. Remember running as admin! otherwise it won't work..

EDIT: I just saw at the nvidia website, they have drivers for windows 7 too, try downloading and installing those, if not, use the XP ones..

"Solved" my problem by installing Win7 x86 instead of 64bit. OpenGL just will not work for me in 64bit, but works without a hitch using the newest vista x86 drivers.

The win 7 drivers were blurry in w7 x86 also. Hopefully its an issue being worked at, since i would like to make use of all 8 gigs of ram.

The latest Win7 nvidia drivers still have the same openGL issue for me.
