    Take out one of your video cards. It should fix the problem.

    Wow it certainly looks like a config problem you have tried other resolutions right? It may be that it just don't like that card. have you tried an older version of ubuntu? I like gos which is a thin version of ubuntu and it likes both my 7900 and my fx 1300 so i don't think its a driver issue do you have another card ? Also I have seen memory do this same problem b4 that was on an AGP card but I think pci-e still uses base mem
