    It's finally dying/dead

    I have not had a chance to try the safe mode tip that was suggested, but i was able to try it in another rig and got the same issue. I'm leaning towards an RMA at this point. I mean the same issue happens on two stable systems, the only issue seems to be the video card.

    It's finally dying/dead

    So i bought the HD6950 mentioned above and i'm still having an issue. With my dying 4870x2 the system would power up but not post. Now with the HD6950 I can hear it posting and can login to Windows(blindly mind you), but I get no display. I know i'm logging in because i can hear it. Clearing the CMOS did not help. I have the latest BIOS for my board too. I dont' think it's the PSU(Antec TruPower 1000W), it powered the 4870x2 without a hitch. I have a spare Nvidia card that i use for testing and with that card my system boots up perfectly, display and all. Am i missing something or did i get a bad card ? ...

    So both of these you think are better than the 6870? I'll probably go 6950

    i play games in 1920x1200...it's a 24 inch monitor. I run a second display too, but only game on the 24 incher.
  8. So my HIS 4870x2 is finally dead...no video out put anymore. It's been dying for some time now, I experienced artifacting every now and then. I'm looking for a comparable card in this generation, not the current top of the line card. I was looking at a HD5850. Should i consider something else to match my current rig? (rig is in sig) Thanx

    It's dying :(...

    So i've been seeing streaks/snow every now and then for about the last month. The last two days I started seeing BSOD . ATIKMPAG.SYS is in the dump file...but anyways. I'm pretty sure the card, ATI/AMD 4870x2, is on it's last legs... Can someone recommend a good replacement? In terms of power, I"m looking for something in the same range, or just a slight bump up. Trying to stay under $200... Rig is in my sig below, Thanks

    3 monitors, 1 video card?

    Problem is the machine I am planning to do this on is AGP only ....that card won't work for this box.
  12. I am thinking of running 3 displays from my PC. I only have an AGP port in the box that I am going to do this with. I was thinking of this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814161284 Does anyone know if I will be able to use all three video outs( DVI, VGA, and HDMI) at the same time? Thanks

    2 Lanes, Half The Speed?

    Thanks for the info. I am planning on using only one video card, an HD 4870 X2.
  14. I"m looking at the MSI P45 Platinum, and noticed that it states: "When using two PCIE x16 slots, the PCIE x16 lanes will auto arrange from x16/x0 to x8/x8" Will this be a servere bottleneck? When using one video card? When using 2 Video cards in crossfire? Here is the board on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813130179
