This is untested, so tell me if it works. I believe it should be modified to allow HDMI audio as well.
(axm, you couldn't handle following my instructions? And 'common'? Come on... )

Thanks for the kext, works great!
Unfortunately, to be honest, I didn't understand the procedure, you've described on the first page. Perhaps my english is not good enough to understand it fully... The same reason causes the "Common"... I've mixed it up...

I'm wondering if I should try GraphicsEnabler=no to see if it's detect the correct ports, and if programs like DVD player don't crash, then leave it.
If that fails, I understand if I replace the Kext and add AtiConfig=Eulemur it should pick up the right ports? Also, how do I know which personality it's using by default without specifying one?

Here is the Kext, based on the original 10.7.4 Kext, but without the ghost VGA display.

I'm also extremely curious as to what DSDT edits got this card working...I'm on a Intel DX58SO though but at least I'd know where to start.

I did the above editing for the mountain lion driver. I haven't tested it, but it will hopefully work. I'll update this post to confirm if/when I get it working.
EDIT: It works! Although there is a problem in my setup where diplayport stops working if DVI is plugged in then unplugged... is this a problem with the edit, or a problem with 10.8.0?
EDIT2: After really getting into some framebuffer personality editing, I have failed to resolve the sleep/port flipping issue. Since I somehow borked my install during all the installs, I'm temporarily downgrading until 10.8.1.
A very interesting discovery, however, is that simply by changing the senseid (last byte in the line) for the phantom DVI port to match the other (they should both be 4, according to the BIOS parser) the extra display disappears... pretty cool.
I made like 20 versions of the 10.8 driver, and while most solved the display problem none solved the sleep issue, but I'll try to do similar edits to the 10.7.4 and upload it for comparison's sake. This framebuffer editing is kind of interesting...
EDIT3: Actually bothering to read instead of just editing and rebooting led me to the netkas forum... so there is, apparently, a long history of displayport problems on non-apple 5XXX cards! This explains why DVI and HDMI are working perfectly...
Interestingly, DP works with either of those also plugged in. This may have something to do with DP++ (DVI-compatible w/passive converter) output from this port, since the output is BLACK, i.e. a signal is being sent—my monitor stays on and is recognized in hardware—but it's not decodeable by the monitor, or something.
If HDMI doesn't work with the below kext, I can upload my more recent version. I'm too lazy right now, but the senseid should be 5 on the HDMI port, according to the bios decode.

First, I don't know if HDMI was working (video) before, but it is now, anyway. So this edit differs from the original Vervet->Eulemur in that the SenseID on the HDMI port has been changed to 5.
The big innovation, which was encoraged by the good folks at netkas' forum, was to put the edited Vervet framebuffer into the Hoolock personality. Hoolock is the Apple 5770 personality, and it has special flags in the plist to enable displayport. So this kext should be used with Hoolock, not Eulemur!
I have tested and confirmed all 3 ports working separately and combinations of any 2 ports also working. However a display on the third port was not recognized, so this is not effective for triple-display setups. Of course, I have no idea whether triple display was working under Lion, either
All that said, here she is:
ATI5000Controller.kext.zip 100.21K 75 downloads
Once again, this kext goes with Hoolock.

What I did is copyed it under Sys/Lib/Ext/ and then Chmodded and rebuild the cache.
Then I used Chameleon Wiz ot change boot.plist and added Ati - config and Hoolock.
I tried connecting Displayport ( nothing ) and nothing on DVI either.
However the ATI cards shows up under System report display cards.

No output on DVI is odd. I'd try using Vervet, which is known to work with DVI but should have that annoying ghost screen. If that works, and we have the same card and same bios, either I uploaded the wrong file or something else is going on.
If the above don't explain the problem, I would get the IOREG information using IORegistryExplorer, which can be downloaded from Apple's developer website, and is rolled into DSDTSE as well. And, you know, make sure there are no typos or loose wires.
EDIT: It looks like I uploaded the correct file. It's a stock kext with only Hoolock edited. You could try the one I uploaded earlier with Eulemur...

Then I get the Displayport working also but only If I dont boot up with it. ( if the monitor is plugged into it when I boot and has power ) it will not work untill I either unplug the DIsplayport cable or Take the power of the monitor.
So now I just use my onboard HD 3000 for 1 screen and the other is on the R5770 DVI port and no ghost

Hope it works for you!
