Hi guys!

I have a Radeon X1600 (Pro, by MSI I think), PCIE model. Currently it works using the Natit Uni installer, everything but dual screen. I use an 8.8.1 Kernel, on a 10.4.8 machine, of course :D .

But, as it happens, dual screen is kind of essential for me. So here's my question:

Should I
  • keep the X1600 and wait for a nice installer for it that enables dual screen, or do you have any info that might help me?
or should I
  • sell/scrap the X1600 and buy a new card which currently has Dual Screen working?
What are your thoughts?

Try out manual installation, with the dual display kext. My GF4 Ti4200 gives Dual Display with that kext.

Sorry, forgot to mention:
I tried pretty much every combination: Uni installer + manual modification, dual kext, the x1600 dual thingy.

The problem may be that one screen is TFT and uses DVI and the other a DVI-VGA adapter for a CRT.
