    ya, well, i switched it onto a 14" @ 800x600 but still got these lines. funny thing though, when i play sc or anything, no lines..is it the ramdac screwed up?

    well yes and no becuase last I heard the ramdac was used for games. right?

    but then again games usually run at 60Hz. What Hz level do you have your desktop set to? Maybe the card is weakening or the MONITOR (S) are weakening and can't handle that refresh rate anymore. Cause I have an old 14"er and I get lines when I put the refresh rate up to high. But this monitor is so old that it doesn't give me the floating box saying "out of sync"
