Hey guys, sorry for making a new thread for this, but information regarding compatibility with the HD 5xxx series cards are sketchy at best. Some say they are able to see their BIOS posting, and some don't irregardless of the their 27'' Korean panels.

So to make this easier for other people and myself, I'm making a poll. Leave a post if you wish detailing your 27'' panel and preferably the exact HD 5xxx card that you used to for BIOS posting.

I'm currently running a gigabyte GV-R587UD-1GD, so if anyone that has experience with this card leave a kind post, that would be great.

Thanks guys.

PS: If 5870, doesn't work, what current cards would work that's under $250

Well after 2 weeks, my crossover 27q led p came despite knowing that my 5870 might not be able to post BIOS. Now the good news is, my 5870 does post BIOS perfectly, no problem so for those people who are looking to get a crossover and run it on a gigabyte 5870, the card is compatible.

I'll post pics of the BIOS post later if anyone doubts the claim.

That's great! How would you rate the image quality?

probably better than my LG TN display, but i wouldn't really know, not a graphics designer nor am I too versed with calibration.

Of course it's going to be better than a TN display. You should read up on the calibration guides.

Text is crisper. Professional grade calibration requires a hardware sensor and very expensive software to match. The free ones are all done mostly by eye, in the end I just tried different ICC profiles that are floating on this forum. Luckily I don't have any massive tint bias in any of the RGB.

Did you get the monitor for gaming? If then calibration is still worth a try.

And Samsung SSD's are the best.

Didn't get it exclusive for gaming, more for reading and watching hd movies (bed right next monitor, the swivel function is a god send). Yeah Samsung SSD's pretty reliable, did my research before jumping on the ssd bad wagon.
