    Samsung 830 Series SSD 512 GB

    What is wrong with the 256MB models? I was thinking of getting two and putting them into RAID 0.

    XFX 4870X2 Used - Whats it worth?

    It pains me when I realize I've played Bioshock twice, about 10 minutes of Fallout 3, (literally) a total of 14 hours of TF2, and probably 15 hours of Modern Warfare 2. That is all the gaming I've had the time to do since I bought this monster i7 rig w/ the 4870x2 last December. I almost feel...

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    People are telling me that I really shouldn't switch to Vista 32 and I should just wait for the issue to be fixed. What do you guys think?

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    It is with the Vista 32-bit 9.1 drivers, so I'm pretty sure my card won't exhibit the error under Vista 32. So basically the 64-bit drivers are the problem. What kind of performance hit am I going to take by using Vista 32 instead of Vista 64?

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    Guess what? The problem doesn't happen in Windows 7 32bit. I'm going to do a fresh install of Vista 32bit right now and see if the problem happens.

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    Update! I'm reporting live from a Dell S2409W 24" monitor. I finally went to Best Buy and got another monitor so I could further troubleshoot my issue. I am having the same exact problem with this monitor. This was kind of expected, as I did not think that my monitor was to blame. I just wanted...

    Tomorrow I want to buy another monitor from Best Buy to test with my setup. The problem is, won't they try to charge me a restocking fee when I return it?

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    I'm definitely going to try to get my hands on another graphics card and monitor to test. The problem is, I'm not sure if that will be possible. I'm going to call around and see what I can gather.

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    Yeah, but come to find out, the problems with the VGA were only happening on that instance of Vista. After a fresh Vista install the VGA..... .....wait a minute, I haven't tried the VGA on the fresh install. I'm going to switch hard-drives again, test out the VGA, and report back. Thanks for...

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    I won't be happy until this thing runs 1920x1080 under DX10 without the error. For some reason it ran without the error a few times, but I can't make any sense of those instances. The fact that it ran those few times kind of makes me want to rule out the monitor as the culprit. What do you folks...

    Sapphire 4870x2 BIOS? (I need it.)

    BUMP! One of you out there with a Sapphire 4870X2 must have a BIOS!

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    I just did a fresh install on a different hard-drive. The previously mentioned issues with the driver installs are gone, but the good ole' "Out of Range" error remains.

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    I tried to run World in Conflict w/ DX10 at 1920x1080 and same ole' error. I couldn't ALT+TAB out either so I had to hard reset. It's back to weird city. Login screen was at an odd resolution (only taking up about half of the screen) and everything was very dark until I ran a game and then...

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    Uh...WTF. So I added 1080p60 standard (1920x1080@60Hz) to the format list, then went into Display Properties, clicked "Force" then went down to "HDTV Mode" and picked "1920x1080 @ 60Hz." I tried to run the usual benchmark tool I use and I got the "Out of Range" error again. I was expecting...

    Sapphire 4870x2 BIOS? (I need it.)

    I am wanting to flash the BIOS on my card to see if it gets rid of the problems I am having. The date on my BIOS, according to CCC, is 9/23/2008. It would be a great help if anyone has a BIOS newer than this that they could provide. If you don't know how to save your BIOS, just download GPU-Z...

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    So I followed normal procedure to try to get the driver installed correctly. I right-clicked the "ATI Radeon 4870X2" with the yellow exclamation mark, went to uninstall, got rid of it, then scanned for new hardware and the display adapter popped up. I navigated to where the 9.1 drivers were on...

    I just did a fresh install of Catalyst 9.1 and I'm getting this crap now... Any suggestions? Also, does this mean that only "half" of my card is working?

    GPU-Z says the following... Release Date: August 12, 2008 BIOS Version VER011.007.000.000.030318 How do I find out what the latest BIOS version is and obtain a copy of it?

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    I just got off the phone with the local computer place and they don't even have a monitor that does 1920x1080 so I wouldn't be able to test the monitor there. They guy also said, "Just bring in the computer and the monitor. So long as there's nothing physically wrong, I'm pretty confident we can...

    4870x2 Resolution out of Range Error

    You're right, I didn't say that I was going to them because they have different monitors I could test the card on. My bad.
