Is that the native resolution for that monitor? Have you tried changing the refresh rate?

Perhaps the resolution is incorrect. What is the model of your LCD? Are you setting the resolution in both the game and Windows?

for now i just leave it at 1660x1050 or whatever, it seems to fill the screen up that way. its weird though, the box says "1920x1080" and even newegg says it


on a side note though, this freakin 5970 is EPIC. lol. im a console gamer converted to PC. and i cant believe how awesome the graphics are

yes i just got the card from UPS today. Flashed the bios before i even installed the drivers for the first time. after the bios was all set. i installed the 10.3 driver pack from XFX support site.

games seem to be running fine. BFBC2 is great. crysis has some flickering goin on when you look at the clouds. dont know whats up with that. all in all im pretty happy with the card so far. even happier that it fit in my case! lol
