Like you said, mine only has the one input on the monitor side, and that is indeed a VGA port.

Im using a DVI-I to VGA adaptor currently and that is what is causing these weird uneven lines on dark colours (grey and black) and hense why I thought switching to a HDMI - VGA cable would solve the problem. Alas I am now on the hunt for a DVI-I - VGA cable so that I can remove the adaptor and hopefully get rid of the this problem :)

Hey kLN93 and everyone who has done this fix. So I swapped out my adaptor for a DVI to VGA cable and loan behold the problem was gone. How ever this has caused a new one xD, did any of you have a problem with ghosting when just using the cable? It is quite bad in the corners of my monitor and I didnt have this problem before when using the adaptor and cable??

Nothing can ever be a simple fix...

Two 6850s or One 7850?
The title says it all. Should I get another Radeon 6850 or just replace the current one with the 7850. Also when you combine two cards, does it add the memory? Meaning if I have two 1GB cards, will it be 2GB total?
