I can't possibly be the GPU at fault if it is not in the system smile.gif

Thanks Wildcard, you nailed it. I pulled out an old monitor from the garage and it works flawlessy, WITH the GPU. I guess there is something lost in translation with my Cinema Display. If I were to just use my old monitor, everything now works perfectly 100%.

But now that I know what the issue is, how the heck can I fix this? I don't want to get rid of my monitor because it works great other than the stupid BIOS. Perhaps it has something to do with GIgabyte's "3D BIOS?"
