Help with 5870!! Burred

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Read stuff here all the time but I never had to post. First time post!
I'll start off with my new build specs -
Asus Rampage III Formula
Intel I7 950
G.Skill 6g tri chan 1600
Sapphire HD 5870 2g Eyefininity
50g SSD
1 tb 7200 rpm HD

So I recently rebuilt my computer and I decided to switch from Nvidia to ATI. I guess I shouldn't fix what isn't broken (0 problems with nvidia). I ordered a Sapphire HD 5870 2g Eyefinity from newegg for because it was an exceptional deal. Clear all my old drivers, install ATI drivers, mess with CCC, and log into WoW. The frame rates and color were great but I couldn't help but see that the text was quite blurry and surroundings weren't crisp. Any info on how to fix this or opinions on a RMA to get a new card would be great!

I've messed with most of the CCC setting including AA but nothing seems to work.

OCZ Vertex 2 is the SSD i'm using

Can't really compare those Pics cause the ATI Pic is different... too far zoomed out compared to the nVidia Pic.

How about matched/identical Pics from both? Honestly, I think the ATI pic looks awesome.

By the way, welcome to OCN! Go to your USER CP (at the top) and Edit your System Specs on the left menu, so they show in your Sig, so everyone properly can see what ya got!

Thanks for all the swift responses and like I said the colors looks fine but it's just not as crisp as the nVidia.

New screenshot of ATI http://oi55.tinypic.com/20zbbd5.jpg
Its easiest to see the blur of ATI at a distance but I don't have any screenshots of nVidia from a distance

I started experimenting with different games and most of them the text is also blurred. Wanted to ease my mind so I started playing Magicka and noticed there were many lines going across the screen. I've tried turning v sink on/off but doesn't seem to help

are you sure your resolution in game is the same as the monitor? Also personally i don't use the settings in CCC unless its for something special, I just set it to "use Application settings" when when applicable other than that i have all the gaming settings in CCC set to max.

yep 1920 x 1080 with use application settings otherwise maxed and still blurred. just about to RMA this card and go back to nVidia.

Edit: Does anybody thing I just got a bad card? Should I try to get a new one, try 6870, or try nvidia 570. I originally bought this card because my friend got the 1 gig version and loved it. Anymore insight would be much appreciated.

Please if anybody has any idea throw them at me. ATM waiting to call AMD. I want to believe its ATI is good but I havn't had any success with them so far. I still don't know if there is just something wrong with the chipset or if sapphire is just a bad comp. Please any info would be great

Umm, I don't think your resolution is set correctly. Your screenshots definitely aren't 1920x1080.
