Ati Radeon Hd 5870 Crossfirex With 1600x900 Monitor Display

Do you recommend ati radeon hd 5870 crossfirex to a 1600x900 monitor display? Well, only one thing matters when you're wondering whether or not this graphics card will work with that monitor is the amount of ram (known as vram) in the graphics card. But trust me, two 5870's will have more than enough vram on your graphics card. Just make sure you're are getting a very high end amd processors at least. But i would recommend a mid-range to high-end i7 processor so there is no bottle-necking the graphics (that's where a certain part isn't able to use its full potential because of another part. An example of a bottleneck is the two 5870's paired up with a sempron processor, idk any idiot who would do that, but that an example of extreme bottle-necking). I'm not sure what graphics card you have but theoretically, with to radeon hd 5870's, you could run up to 6 monitors with the 5xxx series eyefinity feature. It would be pretty awesome to run 6 monitors at a time!

Laptop Resolution 1600x900 With 24" Monitor To Display 1920x1080

If my laptop has resolution up to 1600x900 and it connects to a 24" monitor, can i display 1920x1080 on it? The 1920 x1080 for the monitor, of course. Answer:- almost certainly you can. 1920x1080 isn't all that much more than 1600x900, and the limitation is ultimately in the screen. Most laptops have graphics cards that are capable of higher resolution than the laptop's built-in screen.

Ati Radeon Hd 5870 Manufacturers

I have been searching for a decently priced 5870 card and found that xfx did the cheapest (on However after reviewing my future purchase i found that many people have had a problem with xfx cards and that their rmd leaves much to be desired. I also found that visiontek were the most preferred manufacturer and so set out to find how much they priced them at in the uk. And so this is were i got stuck. I cannot find a visiontek radeon hd 5870 card anywhere on online uk computer hardware stores like scan and lambdatek and started to wonder if you could get them in the uk at all. So i opted to get a sapphire one instead, however i then found two sapphire 5870 cards existed (not including the eyefinity 6 ones) and that one of them hasn't been released yet. I am wondering if i should wait for the soon-to-be released sapphire card, get the current sapphire one or is there in fact a store that sells a visiontek card. (Also if there are other recommended manufacturers other than these two i should consider that are priced around 300 to 350, or cheaper if possible, although that goes into xfx territory). Thanks in advance for any help and the sapphire cards are: Pl?Prodid=b277054&viewspec=y&showold=#producttop Pl?Prodid=b273998&viewspec=y&showold=#producttop

Ati Radeon 9600 No Signal To Monitor

I've had this computer for 3 years now and haven't had a single problem with it yet. It was built by ibuypower. It came with the ati radeon 9600 already installed and worked for three solid years. I ran this computer and another computer on a kvm switch which allowed me to use one monitor keyboard and mouse for 2 computers. This also worked for quite some time before i stopped using the switch. Today, after my computer with the ati card updated windows xp, it restarted and now i can't even get it to show anything on the monitor. Everything still runs on the computer, all the leds inside the case still work, all the connections are tight, there just isn't a display on the monitor. What i've tried: i've tried rebooting into safe mode (don't understand how that could have worked because i can't see anything from the time i turn my computer on up to the time i try to reboot it) but no luck. I've tried removing the video card and cleaning the fan (fan still runs when it is in and computer is on) i've hooked up the monitor to a different computer and it worked fine, so it's not the monitor having problems. I've tried multiple restarts.

Dual Monitor With Ati Radeon Xpress 200

I have an ati radeon xpress 200 onboard video card and a ati 3d rage pro pci that i want to run dual monitors on using xp. I can only get one card to work at a time. In my bio the only option i see is to choose onboard, pci, or pci-e. If i select the onboard video it will detect the pci one, but not start it. If i pick the rage 3d it only detects it.

Ati Radeon 9550 256mb Dual Monitor Setup

I have a sis motherboard that has only 1 agp slot, and 3 pci slots. I have 2 agp cards (one is currently installed, other sitting in a box), it's an ati radeon 9550 256 mb card with 2 plugs on the back (one monitor is plugged in and running), not sure if they are dvi or vga, but i think my current monitor is plugged into the vga. What i want to know is, do i absolutely have to have 2 video cards? If so, i only have one agp slot, what do i have to buy?

Can i use an adapter to plug the 2nd monitor into the dvi?

Any way to use the original monitor plug with one, and leave the other with my ati?

Radeon 5870 And Radeon 3400 In The Same Computer

Have 3 lcds with dvi connections and a radeon 5870. Because the radeon 5870 only supports 2 dvi + 1 displayport, i cannot power all three monitors on one card. I installed a radeon 3400 to power my third monitor. So, i put the 3400 in the top pci express slot closer to the cpu. I put the 5870 in the lower one away from a lot of the heat. My question is this: what is the default card for the system now? I've tried playing a few games and they run sllooowww.I was getting 25 fps in a game so i a pretty sure it is using the 3400. I read the manual but it doesn't say which is the default slots if two cards are in. Do i need to change slots or is there a bios setting?

I have a ga-ma790fxt-ud5p.

Ati 5850 Vs Ati 5870

I'm looking at buying a new video card, and i was looking at either a 5850, or a 5870. I have chosen that i want an xfx card, so i limited it down to here:



The 5850 is $280-$325, and the 5870 is $390-$500. (The $500 is the 2gb card). I was looking at some benchmark results, and i was wondering, it it really worth the difference? I'm interested in some pretty heavy gaming (crysis, gtaiv, etc. ), And i'm coming from a 5770, so either of these will be a great improvement, but i am hoping to not have to upgrade this for a while, and i was just wondering what you guys think. Also, cross-firing is not an option for me, so please don't suggest it. My specs:
Gpu: xfx 5770 1gb
Cpu: amd phenom ii x6 1055t
Mobo: asus m4a77td
Psu: xion 700w

Notebook Ati Cards - Radeon 9800 And Radeon X600 Difference

Say a 256mb radeon 9800, and/or 256 radeon x600, how much of a difference would these have compared to their desktop counterparts. I wanna assume that they would try to just port it into the lappy but i seriously doubt that. So i guess that if the desktop 9800 has 8 pipes, the lappy version wud have 4 to keep it cooler? Same applies to x600 then right?

The other thing is, how does the desktop x600 compare to nvidia. Wats its competitor card? A regular 6800? Highly doubt that. Ill look this one up. I dont know the number of pipes on the x600. . Using sapphire's x600 pro for reference. It is 4 pipes. What the , fx series then?! 5950xt or sumthin in that order?

Radeon 5870 Not Fast

Really disappointed with my radeon 5870's performance in crysis. In very high settings, i got 27 fps with my old card (gtx 260) with the 5870 i get 30 fps, almost no improvement (was expecting at least 40). There must be a bottleneck somewhere. I have a e6850 core 2 duo (3ghz) and 3 gb ddr2-800 ram. I know that a quad core is really important for gta 4, but according to this test:

It doesn't seem to matter that much in crysis. I use win xp with the "very high settings" hack

Difference Between Gigabyte Radeon And Ati Radeon

Is there a difference between in quality in let's say a gigabyte radeon 9600pro and ati radeon 9600pro. The reason i am asking this is because a had problems with my gigabyte radeon 9600pro and wonder if it would perform better if it were from another manufacturer. I'm thinking of upgrading soon so this is important.

Ati 5870 Driver Issues

This problem has been recreated on 10. 1, 10. 2 (& using a hotfix), 10. 3 release candidate drivers
As well as 2 separate sapphire hd 5870 graphic cards. Needless to say i'm struggling with my patience and need some help. Some of you may remember my graphical issue with my mouse cursor doing some crazy things. Its very consistent, happening more often than not anymore. Other items of interest. This happens when in eyefinity across 3 monitors (2xdell 2408 &1 dell 2405)

Also it happens when not in eyefinity but each monitor being separate

It also happened when i was only using 2 monitors (samsung t260hd & dell 2405)

The cursor issues will only happen on one monitor and not the other 2. It is random which monitor it will happen on, mostly its the left, but sometimes the center. Never more than one monitor at a time. I've noticed at times the cursor becomes distorted only after moving the cursor to the very bottom of the screen and bringing it back into view if you will, again random. Keep in mind since prtscrn does not take a pic of the mouse i have to use my dslr





This one is fun :|


Difference between the monitor on the left with the problem, but the middle monitor not so much. Bad




This has just been a really rough experience and i appreciate any insight you guys may have. I am going to copy paste this into an ati support ticket once i figure out the right place to send this. Let me know if you guys want any further info like a dxdiag or something.

Choppy Game Performance - Ati 5870

I recently finished my computer build and after installing win 7 ultimate and configuring my system i've gotten down to installing some games. On aion it tends to run decently well, and red faction looks good, but for some reason crysis on high and even medium is a literal slideshow!

I've updated the drivers and catalyst controller to make sure it isn't that, and am hoping im missing an easy fix!

My hardware is:

I7 860
Asus ati 5870
Asus p7p55d evo
G. Skill ripjaws series 4gb (2 x 2gb) 240-pin ddr3 sdram ddr3 1600
Corsair tx850
Wd 640 black

As a side note, during my initial setup my bios read my memory wrong so i had to manually set the voltages and timings, although i hope that isn't the issue.

Ati Driver Problem With Dual Display

Msi radeon hd 4350 512mb on xp sp3. Latest ati driver. Dvi to lcd monitor as primary display at 1280x1024; hdmi to hdtv as 2nd display with extended desktop 1080p. After the tv is turned on and off a few times, i can only have a single display - if tv is on, it's the tv; otherwise the monitor. Tried to use control panel -> display -> settings and got the following message below.could any one help to decipher the message and found a solution?

Invalid display settings

The currently selected graphics display driver can not be used. It was written for a previous version of windows, and is no longer compatible with this version of windows. The system has been started using the default vga driver. Please contact your hardware manufacturer to get an upgraded driver, or select one of the microsoft provided drivers. -

Blotchy Display - Ati Driver Crash

Here's the problem i've been having. 1. As soon as i boot up the computer, as soon as the motherboard's logo screen comes on i get this very messy screen. It's like there are these white dots evenly spaced all across the screen. It continues in bios and winxp installation, often blocking the letters. When the winxp logo bootup screen shows up, the blocks turn into big green ones, still evenly spaced. When it comes into windows, it becomes 3-4 giant vertical, spaced-out strips that is sort like a darker shade of
The normal color that it should be. If i were to move the mouse over it, all these strips would flash a lil color for an instance but still remain. 2. All of the above has been on winxp's generic video driver. I have been unable to install any radeon/ati drivers. The latest one from the msi website (v8. 09), the latest one from ati (catalyst 5. 6, both with and w/o net frame versions), and the usually reliable omega drivers (catalyst 5. 4). It would install fine but then after a restart, there would be a significantly mroe noticeable red blotches over the screen. Then mouse won't work after bootup, then 10 secs or so after it goes
Into windows, the monitor's display would go on and off, always freeze and very distorted. The problem would go away if i were to go to safe mode and uninstall those drivers. Here are the steps i've already done to try and solve the problem:

1. Update using the latest bios and drivers for both the graphics card, motherboard, sata chipset, lan chipset, and bios from both msi and the manufacturer's websites (msi, nvidia, etc). 2. Get the latest updates from windows updates. 3. Clear cmos, and use stable (non-overclocking options)
4. Unplug certain unnecessary devices and plugs, such as dvd drive and internal usb. 5. Changed between 2 crt vga monitors and 1 lcd dvi monitor. 6. Disconnected and reconnected all cables. I would really like the know what the problem might be, and if there's any chance i can have of fixing it without returning of the parts. And if i have do, which part is most likely defective?

Ati Display Driver Update Issues For Hd 4870 X2

Im having alot of trouble updating display drivers for my cards (crossfire 4870x2) im not a tech head or expert by any means the installation and restart itself go fine as far as i can see but once the pc has restarted i find that i still have the drivers that came with the card installed or at least being used. Driver packaging version8. 62-090520m1-081756c-ati
Catalyst version09. 6
Providerati technologies inc. 2d driver version8. 01. 01. 909
2d driver file path/registry/machine/system/controlset001/control/class/{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}/0001
Direct3d version8. 14. 10. 0671
Opengl version6. 14. 10. 8673
Catalyst control center version2009. 0520. 1631. 27815

The drivers themselves arent updating. The only thing that is getting updated is the control center and yes, i have tried downloading and installing the 9. 6 drivers on their own. Im sure its probably something minor and obvious but i cant figure it out.

Xfx 5870 Second Monitor Issues

I have been having an issue on 2 different systems that have xfx 5870's in them. Under windows 7 x64, almost every time you boot the system, the extended desktop on the second monitor will not properly enable on a reboot. The system shows the monitor is enabled as an extended desktop, but you have to disable and reenable it for it to actually display an image. Has anyone else experienced this?

5870 Crossfire 4th Monitor

I can't get the second card to detect any displays. Has anybody else had this problem? I have crossfire enabled and i can see the performance increase in bc2 but only with 3 displays. I can even hookup the 4th monitor in place of one of the eyefinity monitors and it detects it. I have tried dvi and hdmi in the second card and neither works. Do i need to try the 10. 3 beta? I am currently 10. 2.

Asus 5870 Not Detecting Second Monitor

I've double checked all the usual stuff, drivers are good, card is good, outputs are good, cables are good. I just can't seem to get my 5870 to "see" my second monitor. I just threw it in my system, without a reformat, i used to be running a 8800gts 640. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking its likely a reformat and reinstall of everything may fix the issue.

5870 Dual Monitor Problem

So today i finally got my new 5870 xxx edition

I had completely removed my old nvidia drivers, and installed the latest ati drivers. Installed the 5870 and right at the start started having problems with duel display configuration. Can someone please answer me, for duel monitors is the hdmi and the 1st dvi port (on top) are the once im supposed to use for this setup? Because using 2 dvi ports doesn't seem to work. The 2nd dvi monitor is always black, even if you only use a single monitor using 2nd dvi it doesn't work. Whats strange when both monitors connected via dvi on the 1st monitor when accessing catalyst the 2nd display is there, but doesn't matter what i tried it doesn't want to turn on, you can see in the options, but the monitor it self doesn't want to turn on, even tho everything is on for this setup to work. For now i got this setup working using hdmi to hdmi and 1st dvi to dvi connection, but makes me wonder if the 2nd dvi is broken or something. Or is only meant to be using using 3rd monitor. Just in case my monitors are dell 2408wfp 24" and dell 2407wfp-hc 24" (both of them work using 1st dvi connection and dont work using 2nd).

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

Monitor Doesn't Go Into Power Save With 5870

Does this happen to anyone else? When the computer is supposed to turn off the display, the screen goes blank, but the backlight doesn't turn off. I'm pretty sure it's not an issue with the monitor, since it went into power save mode just fine w/ my previous graphics card (a 9800gtx). I've got an nec 20wmgx2 if that makes a difference.

5870 Dual Monitor Screen Tear / Flickering

I just got a 5870 from 4870 and immediately noticed that whenever the automatic 2d to 3d clock jumps up to full 850/1200 there is a significant flicker to a tear in the #2 monitor only and when i use extended desktop. It is repeatable and only happens at that point. I graphed it and can see the vccd/vccd1 amp jump is from 2. 6a/4. 2a to 11. 4a/12a>. I am using a msi afterburner/rivatuner instead of the smartdoctor from asus that came with it because i had it with the 4870 and liked it and it also has the low the de-clocking limit at 600mhz/900mz instead of the other 157/300mhz. All the temps are low when this happens 38-40c . No problems at all on single monitor though there is significant throtling up and back for the vccd volt/amp and the clocks. All the time there is not more than 30-40%gpu use. I can reproduce it easily by just scrolling up and down some web pages. When the 2d is flat line (600/900mhz) no problems and when i am in a game or max gpu use no 2nd monitor issue. I have done every switch and combo, hdmi dvi, both dvi ports dont know. It is like a recurring short. Like a lap top i had where the wear on the hinges causes some shorts to the panel but this screen tear or flicker is fast and easy to pin point. Though the vddc amps jump up and down, the gpuz graph looks like a comb or gap tooth smile, the volts are steady flat line during the clocks and amps jumping so the regulator seems ok . I dont know why the amp draw is dropped so low even when the clocks are at 600/900. If everything stayed level there would be no screen tear. Even with the bouncing around there shouldnt be that effect in the 2 monitor for extended desktop. I know there are any number of other people with the issue , i have gotten no response, nor have they , from amd/ati , asus either and have posted at those forums without any corrective experiences. Some suggestions for similar types of problems but nothing for the same . I am using win7 x64 bit home premium. Many other people , not all though, are 7/64 as well though some xp and vista 64 too. I should have enough power i just put a thermaltake xt 750 in and i used a mushkin enhanced 580 with the 4870 and no problem. I had the 580 running this as well till last week and never had a power problem, never had any problem. I built this last nov and have kept up to date with the drivers, put in ccc 10. 2 last week, gigabyte m4a79xtd evo, asus eas5870, phenomii 3. 4 (oc 3. 77 not for testing)965be, gskill ddr3 1600 pc12, 800, 2x samsung f1 750s, xigmatek s1283 cooler, thermaltake xt750, win7 x64 home prem, hp 1270dvd/cd24xsupermulti, liteon 8xbd/dvd combo, cm rc 690 4 scythe s-flex case fans 1sine intake , 3exhaust- top/rear . The card and case are well cooled and heat has not been an issue for this problem, i would appreciate any insights as to what i might do to correct this. I have tried just about all i can think of, some suggestions, remove and reinstall directx with sdk version someone said helped a like situation but heat may have been related to his. Mostly just trying process of elimination. Have taken off or disabled software to check on conflicts. I use the 2nd monitor to keep tool sets or other utilities so i can keep the larger screen in tact or in 2 parts. I tried to make a group but with different size monitors it just isnt right though might be a fix for someone with the issue with twin displays.

Ati Radeon 7000 Error

Recently purchased a radeon 7000 graphic card. The card that came installed on the pc is an internal radeon xpress 200 graphic card. At first the card was working fine, the new one. (Radeon 7000). But i formatted my computer, and now when i go to watch any type of movie/video, be it on the web, or a regular dvd, the graphics don't display. I hear audio, but the visual is black. This also causes the computer to freeze up causing me to have to reboot. Some people told me that i am missing some codecs. Well i downloaded a lot, and its still not working. So i have reformatted my computer, and haven't downloaded any specific codec files. When i try to play a movie off of my radeon xpress 200 with my radeon 7000 unplugged, the movies play just fine, but when i plug in my 7000 and run my monitor(s) off of that one, the movies stall and refuse to display anything. Is there a driver update i am missing? I made sure i downloaded the latest ones from the ati website. I also ran dxdiag and its showing no problems with any drivers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I've also done the cmd// debug// and saw my number was 78501. So i went to the site, and downloaded the . Bin but i don't know how/where to install it.
Thats the one that i downloaded.
