Yesterday i got ATI Radeon HD 7850 2gb, using the Windows8 drivers released by AMD most things look great but (or whatever the hell they call that thing!) is all messed up, icons are low resolution until I "mouse over" and I can't read the text, this pic shows what it's like:
Go to the ATI's website, and get the new beta video driver for Windows 8. CCC won't be available till a final release of Windows 8 becomes available in the retail chain. Your only other option is to go back to Windows 7.
I also have issue with ATI/AMD HD latest driver installed to Win 8. But I you want to, try installing older Driver. In my case I installed ver 11.2 (old enough) and is now running without issue. But if you really want it work with latest driver, then Windows seven will do as Mike said.

Install an older driver (can be a Win7 one) WITH CCC (control center) included, then update the driver (manually from Device Manager) with the latest beta (a Win8 driver of course) from AMD and CCC (at least basic functions) should still be functional.
Of course it's temporary and only if you wanna try to remain on Win8.

I've got a small number of tryable solutions...
1. Go into CCC (Catalyst Control Panel) and disable morphological filtering.
2. Go into CCC and disable Anti Aliasing and/or FXAA
3. Install DirectX
4. Install the Catalyst 12.7 Beta Drivers
I remember seeing a post like this before, and the solution was a hotfix of somesort, but I can't find it anymore.
