Radeon 5770 HDMI output doesn't work
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
Everything looks a bit blurry, especially the text. HDMI, DVI, and VGA connections all look bad. VGA looks a little better, but not as clear as HDMI wiith my Windows XP machine, and I also want to output sound.
A few notes:
* Running the the most recent ATI drivers (10.6)
* Pixel ratio set to 1:1 on the TV
* Using native resolution (1080p/60hz, also tried 59hz without improvement)
* Overscan set to 0%
* ClearType text has been adjusted
* Tried older drivers: 10.5, 10.4, 9.8, and 9.1 without success
My 5 year old Windows XP Dell, with a $40 Radeon 4350 card, has no problem producing crisp text via HDMI on this same HDTV. I tried the same 4350 card in my new Windows 7 computer and experienced the same problem as with the 5770.
Do yall think it will fit?

Everything seems to work fine except 1 thing and that is that the screen blinks (black screen) for 1 second and then goes back to normal sometimes.
I thought that it might be a problem with the graphics card (gtx 260) but yesterday I bought a new graphics card, just for this bloody issue (HD Radeon 5770) and I still have the same issue.
Apparently something having to do with the "EDID" thing and there is a "solution" which I dont understand at all presented for nVidia cards and Im wondering if anyone with knowledge knows how to solve this very annoying issue for Radeon (5770) or come with some suggestions?

and me being not so tech savy, I'd like some second opinions. I'm not looking to spend more then 400$ CAD however, so if you can recommend me something that falls within my budget, even better.
I'm on Windows 7 Pro 64x Intel Q6600 @ 2.40Ghz , I have a 650w power supply, 22inch monitor running at 1680x1050 and I primarily game.
This is pretty awesome, but I wonder how much performance the 5770 would lose being integrated.
Since Im in much need for the HDMI and some other reasons and he's not, I switched our graphics cards.
Everything seemed to work fine at first, I installed the drivers on his computer and the gtx 260 was working fine there. On other hand, when I tried to install the drivers (the screen was huge) on my computer with the Radeon 5770, the computer suddenly froze (it has never done this before).
When I turned it back on I heard a "peep peep peep" sound from the computer after a few seconds and there was no screen on the display. I could hear the harddrive working etc but no graphics.
I then switched places on the HD 5770 card (There were 2 blue contacts that looked the same) and the computer turned on. This time it worked for aprox 20 minutes (with new drivers installed) until the computer suddenly froze again. When I tried turning it back on, I got the beeping sound again and nothing showed up.
Both of the cards seem to work just fine on my brothers computer and I dont think I have any hardware issues on my either since its a pretty good computer that has never caused me any troubles.
Which I got to thinking.. is there a system out there that reports 7.9 in all categories?
Am I better off going with a 5770? I hear the drivers are not up to Nvidia's standards. I have LOVED Nvidia drivers over the years. Am I going to regret buying this card. (thinking about a Sapphire 5770, but it looks like they are all 1GB GDDR5 cards)

now i hear that the 5 series ATI cards have issues at the momment, with driver crashes and the CCC randomly acting up, i never has an graphics card before (my first built pc im doing, allways been in the MB). So i dont know if to risk getting the 5770 because of the problems at the momment.
But to be honest i would rather get the 5770 because im building a sysstem with an AMD 965 so ATI card will go well, and it has DX11.
