Additional specs to what I placed in my signature:

AMI BIOS (I think) ver. TBD once I get it built
WINDOWS XP PRO 32-BIT (SPd through 2013/01)
NEC LCD 2470WVX WIDESCREEN ANALOG MONITOR w/ROTATE [1920 × 1200]


I'm here to get help understanding what more I might need to continue enjoying the monitor rotation capabilities of the PCI graphics card I had on my old computer  — along with the CATALYST 09.6 CD that implemented the rotation — on the new computer I'm building, using its onboard D-Sub VGA port.  I am not a gamer, I am a writer and I "live" in the PORTRAIT MODE of my NEC monitor, almost never using it in widescreen mode.

Is monitor rotation available to me natively as part of the integrated HD 65XX/64XX GRAPHICS of the APU I'll be installing . . . or will I need to install my CATALYST 09.6 CD drivers in order to rotate my monitor?

Or something else?  because I am hoping to be able to free up one of the PCI slots for other hardware I need to hookup, and be rid of the need for a separate graphics card altogether.  Thanks.

the latest CCC driver's still have portrait mode so you should have no problem.

oh and I would't try installing that old 09.6 driver it wont work.

Slayer, thanks for replying.  Forgive my confusion but I honestly don't know the answer to this:  Years ago I had to buy a physical ATI Catalyst CD because ATI wouldn't allow me to download any upgraded version of Catalyst.  It was damned expensive, and I remember being angry about having to buy it just to get Monitor Rotation.

I can ask this in the Catalyst forum; but for the benefit of anyone else with this APU/Monitor Rotation question I'll ask it here:

  1. Can I just download and install Catalyst without having to buy something from AMD?
  2. Which version of Catalyst will be compatible with the ONBOARD RADEON HD 65XX/64XX GRAPHICS D-Sub VGA port I'll be attaching my analog NEC monitor to?
  3. Will it still work in the 32-Bit Windows XP Pro environment I am going to continue to use, even in this new AMD build? And finally,
  4. Where can I find the download file?

Thank you so much.

I've never had to buy anything from AMD or ATI to download Catalyst (CCC) so that would be no to your first question.

The answer to the other three can be found here http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonaiw_xp.aspx

 

I hope that helps
