XFX 5770 Random Failures on 10.7.3

08 May 2012 - 04:05 AM

Not quite sure how else to place the topic of this thread. I have recently picked up a XFX 5770 from a friend and after testing it for a few days under windows and linux, i went ahead and put it on my osx build.

The thing booted right away and worked well with either graphicsenabler on or off. I was playing around for a few hours and suddenly my whole screen turns greyish colored and sortve with lines in it to say.

So ive tried a few different framebuffers, same results. This happens completely randomly.

Im curious, what can I try? Should i give another bios a try?

It doesnt appear to be overheating.

recommend me a card!

Looking for a sub $100 card that will run pretty well on the mac. Coming from a 260 that just doesnt perform on the few games i play well. I saw some 5770's for around 120 on newegg and may just go with that if need be.

Any certain brands i should look into or avoid.

Lion GTX 260 Poor performance?

21 December 2011 - 08:41 PM

Hey sort've new to the mac scene. Built up a hackentosh and put in a Nvidia 260 That i had extra and upon install everything seemed to work fine.

I loaded up a few games and what i found was EXTREMELY poor video performance. Everything on the desktop seems fine. Full resolution, Some lowerend games work fine but some others are just extremely slow, no matter the resolution.

I have GraphicEnabler checked but i'm honestly not to sure where to look to see if my card is actually running in full hardware mode.

If it offers any help, the information from System Profiler is as such:

GeForce GTX 260:

Chipset Model: GeForce GTX 260
Type: GPU
Bus: PCIe
PCIe Lane Width: x16
VRAM (Total): 896 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)

I'm just not sure where to really go from here.

I'm running 10.7.2 Chamerleon with GraphicsEnabled = Yes

GA-p35-DS3L Modified Bios

Looking to see if there is a modified bios available for this board so i may install lion with less hassle. I just recently bought a copy and this board for the specific reason of building a hackintosh. Any information would be wonderful :)
