Jaggies and poor quality image.
Went back to origional bios, same results, No. its not fried.
Older games NFSHS , homeworld and such are fine.
Just too much work for the crappy 2.8 memory.
This has to be the worst 5900 xt on the market
and the most expensive to boot.
If your thinking of getting an xt get the leadtek.
Better quality, lower price.

All bfg seems to offer is a warranty.

thought I might also add, I think your PSU could also be a problem ?? remember your 5900XT card will put quite a strain on it ?? What card were you using before the 5900XT ??

also, I hope the power mollex to your 5900 card is from a direct and unshared
PSU connection ???
