I just upgraded my HTPC.
MOBO - Asus p5q pro
CPU - C2D E8500
MEM - Kingston 4GB DDR2 kit
GPU - Asus EAH4850 512MB
PSU - Cooler Master 600w
OS - XP Pro Sp3
Driver - Catalyst 13.1
Primair monitor - Eizo L367 1024x768 DVI
Secundair monitor - Pioneer PDP 506XDE 1240x768 DVI2HDMI
My old config was a P4 2.8Ghz; P4P800; 2Gb RAM
I used to have a Geforce 6200GS 512mb, and use Ultramon. With Nvidia I could easily adjust the resolution of my PDP to fit the screen. Which I didn't find within Catalyst center?
The second problem is I need to adjust the resolution of the PDP after every reboot. Don't know why, but Catalyst put hte resolution everytime back to 840x480? Is there way that can save my adjustments, so the GPU will keep them?
Mostly I work with dualview, and switch monitors with Ultramon. But I use this config also to play Myst 5 game. And with the Myst game, the only option to play the game by my PDP, I need to clone the primair monitor. I find this option with CCC, but the gameplay on the PDP goes slower and stuttering. Not as smooth as used to be with my old config.
And if I stop play the game, I can't find to switch back to dualview. I find to switch to basic and use the wizard to confige the monitors to get the dualview. But this way of doing isn't very handy.
Q1: Do I need adjust something else to avoid the slower and stuttering gameplay with this GPU?
Q2: How can I easily switch back to dualbview?
