I hooked up a 24" samsung syncmaster and a 23" acer monitor to my xfx radeon 4850 card and at first it worked as it should. I could spread my windows to each monitor and watch videos in one and read whatever in the other. Then the card started crashing. I tried to use the catalyst control center to no avail. The mobo accelerater hardware does not recognize the xfx card. I tried smart doctor but it did not recognize either. Now if I pull a window into the secondary monitor I lose my mouse and must wait till it loads up. I am using an Asus P6T mobo with 12 gigs of memory and a core i7 processor. A corsair 750 psu. Should not be robbing me of power. The card has 512 megabytes of DDR. It worked well with one monitor. If I was to upgrade the card to fix this problem does anyone have any suggestions as to the best card in the 300 dollar range.
I suppose I would consider an Asus graphics card so I could use the EPU six engine. It does not recognize the xfx card so I use ccc. I also have turbo V. Am not familiar with any of this stuff. Just want to plug and play.
Okay so it does look like you are using a tri channel configuration and its a x58 chipset. Best card in that range for you hmm I'm not sure I would say a 660Ti, or a 7870 for you. Beyond that I would think you would want to do some overclocking to your CPU.
No problem. So you went with the factory overclocked one right on. It should serve as a great card for you. Hope you are happy with it. I have a 670 which is the 660Ti's bigger brother. You should let me know how it goes
Asus 660 is working fine. Pushing a 23 and 24 inch screen. The old card xfx 4850 was working great on a single monitor when I pulled it. Try to use two and it would slow as soon as I pulled a tab to the other screen.
