Feeling like a noob with driver problems..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Done it a 100 times before but can't figure it out this time around.. Maybe I am just tired...

I just picked up a 4770k and Z87 mobo to replace me 2700k and P67. Got everything up and running, but feeling the drivers are a pick buggy. I have (2) R9 280x Cards. One is a Gigabyte Rev1 and the other is Asus Direct CuII Top.

First time around I went to the Asus site and downloaded the latest drivers.. Still get the ghosting when I moved items around on my screen. Uninstalled the drivers and tried an older one.. No luck. Gave up for a bit to redownload stuff and I came back to find my computer frozen (never happened before).

I then uninstall and go to Gigabyte to try my luck and they say the drivers I have installed currently are newer.. Thought I uninstalled.. So I just did a whole new reformat..

Went to Gigabyte first and well same ghosting problem again but this time around in white areas like in my docs folder and even in this white typing area and I am getting like a checkered plaid look with light grays.. Never seen that before.. But if I drag this window over to my other monitor its not there..

Both monitors are hooked up to the same gpu.. the same gpu before I swapped board..

I am used to Nvida cards and sometime this happened, but I used to load from the same old version drivers which always worked so I never had this problem unless I tried newer drivers.. with these AMD cards I guess I got lucky the first time as I dont know what to do now or how to fix it..

UPDATE: Got rid of the grid (checkered) pattern on my main monitor it was something to do with stupid AMD Catalyst scaling options.. So both monitors have a clear picture but when I move things around I am still getting pretty bad ghosting.. How do I resolve that?

Post both your monitor's resolution and the type of connection (DVI / HDMI / DP) on both the card side and the monitor side (e.g. DVI-DVI) please.
And... which drivers exactly did you install.
