In my Linux Mint ATI Catalyst setup I have set YCbCr as default for Color Pixel Format?

What is the difference?

I subjectively think that RGB (Full RGB) is better for my eyes. YCbCr seems to be more blurry and my eyes have problem to focus and are tired sooner.

YCbCr is the digital counterpart to analog YPbPr component video. (YCbCr converted to analog is YPbPr). Digital RGB converted to analog is usually referred to as VGA. how are you connecting you system with monitor, VGA or HDMI? – Raza Jun 30 '13 at 14:10
