I built a system 2 years ago with ASUS Crosshair V Formula (with AMD FX-9590) and 2) recycled Nvidia GTX 260s in SLI.  I have a 1200W PSU.  I determined that the ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB was the best choice for an upgrade, versus  the GTX 560, since I'm stuck with PCIe 2.0.  I figured since I'm running an AMD system, what could be wrong with an AMD card, right?  I'm running an old ('06) but awesome Apple Cinema 23" display.  The problem is that with the new ATI card, the system BIOS screen will not display; not good.  Does anyone know any tricks with this card/ display combo??  BTW, I have an old analog "test" monitor.  The bios displays on that.  Any help is appreciated!

I've always used EVGA Nvidia cards.  They've always been great in the rare instance I needed support.  This new ATI card is from Sapphire.  I've sent them 3 requests for assistance with no response over the last 2 weeks.  They have no phone support.
