Thanks. Sorry that you're still having trouble. Are the problems you're experiencing when you're on an HDTV or a DVI/VGA monitor?

I've had very few issues w/ ATI drivers when I'm on a DVI or VGA monitor. For some reason, ATI has had trouble with HDTV displays--probably due to the lesser demand of compatibility with them as the majority do not use them with their PCs.

Then again, I don't run all the different media center software packages that you're trying to run, and I've never tried running both ATI and Nvidia cards in my machine.

Good luck in getting everything sorted out. Fermi likely won't best 5970 in performance, but it'll be a great card and may offer you the compatibility that you're looking for outside of gaming. Gaming is just about all I do, that and video editing and some photoshop work. Haven't had trouble in the past with any of these on ATI.
