I have a Sapphire ATi X1600 Pro 256mb PCi-E GFX card in my Hackintosh which is running Leopard 10.5.1 (Kalyway DVD) with vanilla kernel.

I tried installing from the DVD using the Natit package built into the distro but it caused a panic - so installed without any additional packages. This only gives me 1024 x 768 resolution on both my displays and no dual display option. I have been unable to find any method of getting this card to work at higher resolution, and dual display.

Is anyone aware that this card can be made to work? Or should I change to something like a X1950 which I'm told works?

This cards works nice with stock kexts with correct device ID added and natit for x1600 edited by Diabolik.
About dual screen and TV-out it's not supported on any x1600. Mirror is working tho

Krazubu - thank you - I tried editing kexts and adding the Device ID and I used the x1600 natit by Diabolik but it would not work for me. However I am now satisfied that i need to dump this card and get something else as i need to have dual screen.
Suspect it may be because my card is an X1600 Pro Ultimate - i'm assuming that the there must be something different about it as it does not work.

Any suggestions for a new PCi-E Graphics Card gratefully received - I need soemthing capable of Dual Screen at 2048 x 1536, and must work with kalyway leo DVD install

thanks

Hi,
try with ATIinject; it involves editing your screen edid and dev id in atiinject.kext, it works for my laptop (got a x1600 PCIE).
I described here
http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=58819&pid=497268&mode=threaded&start=#entry497268
the procedure is for HPNX9420, but I think it can be adopted also for others...
My 5 cents...
