to keep that thread warm:

i got myself exactly this card (128MByte VRAM, 64bit wide bus -- more 
than enough) but it does not provide DVI-D signalling.

the description says DVI-I which implies that digital, analogue and DDC 
signalling are available.

the card only provides DVI-A (analogue) output and has a *bad* signal 
quality, one can see the ghost pictures meters away (on the LCD as well 
as on my Sony FD 21" CRT).

to verify everything works (read: the display and the cable use DVI-D 
when available) i connected it with my G4 and -- tataa -- DVI-D comes up 

so, does your HIS Radeon provide DVI-D or do you run your LCD on 
analogue signalling...?

to my understanding this is really independent from software, so that if 
the card had DVI-D it'd connect to the display that way as soon as i 
power up the machine...

tia & best,
