    hi there!

    i got a Benq E220HD monitor and Sapphire 4870 1Gb video card.

    in some games that i play, especially when there are darker colors, i see some broad horizontal lines running up and the screen (kind of like those you see if you take a video camera and shoot the screen).

    i had the same problem with one of the games (Bioshock) and then i changed the video setting so that there will be V-sync, and everything wa ok, but with other games, nothing that i can think of fixes it.

    what should i do?

    Can you change the refresh rate via the control panel >display>settings>advanced>monitor. Also hunt around in the general tab it mentions about some games working with different settings

    You have some cool gear ! I went to the manufacturers website for the graphics card http://www1.sapphiretech.com/us/products/products_overview.php?gpid=298&grp=3

    The thing that stands out to me is whether you motherboard is geared up to take you graphics card - Your motherboard needs to be ;

    ATI CrossFireX™ technology requires an ATI CrossFireX Ready motherboard, an ATI CrossFireX™ Bridge Interconnect and may require a specialized power supply.


    Check these things out maybe you graphics card it too demanding for your motherboard???

    Your monitor is also capable of 1920 x 1080 pixels , have you tried altering the pixel sizes for the different games ?
