I have just this week purchased a Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP 24" (i won a 13 match accumulator on the World Cup
) which is awesome, however i had the same issue with my old NEC FE770 17" CRT.
sweet - i'd love one of those
This is the first place i looked when trying to increase the brightness.. as far as i know there is no In-Game Option for increasing brightness etc. I couldn't see 1 anyway
sry didnt know ... i was away from my gaming pc so i couldnt check
Drivers & CCC
This is a new build and so far i have only tried versions 6.5 and 6.6 of the catalyst drivers.. I have downloaded the Omega drivers but not given them a try yet.. I assume the Omega drivers support Crossfire?..i've not tried ATiTool so i will take a look at that!
i think they do, but from googleing the problem seems to come from CCC: ie. if you dont use CCC (i'll check later for which services you need to kill) and use ATItool you should be all set.

Different CF mode?..not sure i know what you mean here, there are different CF modes? lol
i remember when cf came out ATI talked about how superior their tech was because it could use different modes. If you look caefully in CCC you should find it somewhere (dont know where since i am only able to afford 1 card)
On my old monitor using 1152*864 resolution, everything on Max (accept i think terrain is on medium) i was pretty much constantly @ 80-102fps ... i believe my cards are Connect3d, im at work so i cant check!
On my new monitor i have obviously upped the res, but have been tweaking so much trying to fix this issue i can't really comment on the fps. Running windowed @ 1280*1024 averages 40-50fps but i've seen it drop as low as 17fps. Cant play full screen without it being annoyingly dark (its playable im just fussy) or flickering so much i have a fit every 2 mins lol
Edit: Just out of interest, what sort of fps do you get with 1x1900xt @ 1280*1024 maxed out?
because FRAPS due to some reason is not able to measure more than 100fps on my pc (dont ask me why) i dont wnow any max. values. But @ 680/800 i get about 90fps usually when normal walking and fighting. The minimum i recorded was about 60 when 64 people were in the palace in warlord with smoke & ganades & stuff. when i run @ 2d clocks (500/600) i get about 30-65-90 (min-avg-max).
what i would do in your position now is to install ATiTool. It will give you a warning that it will kill a process and therefore the card will stay @ 2d clocks. Say dont show me again. say run on startup via registry. Make a profile that is activated when 3d is detected @ as fast as it can go at 1.4V core. add a hotkey to your gamma control, so that you get your incerased light or add it to your oc profile.
EDIT: The service i am talking about is "ATI hotkey poller". Some people also state the default V for the xt to be 1.425V (this iis the default V for the xtx) and not 1.4V. So if you cant reach 625/750 (checked: those are the standard speeds for 3d on a xt) @ 1.4 try upping to 1.425. I run stable up to 685/803 @ 1.4V/2.086V (some people also claim the default V for mem to be 2.089V).
