No matter what resolution it is set on, when I am scrubbing through an un-rendered part of my project, it is extremely pixely and I can not make out any part of my video really. I did not have this problem with After Effects CS5.5, I now have CS6. This happens on my home computer, which is an [Alienware x51, 16gb RAM, i7 Processor, etc.. It's basically a total beast.] And it also happens on my school computer, which is far less powerful.

Below your composition window there is a display toggle that has a lighting bolt over a tv screen, check and see if you have it set to adaptive resolution, if so, change it to final or fast draft, depending on the speed of your computer/graphics card.
