I am getting little green sparkles in black areas on my mac pro while using the 30inch apple display with the ATI 5770 on the dvi port no other monitors are connected to the card, my older video card does not have the issue and is running two other monitors.

It is only occasional. I removed the 5770 and only used my Geforse 8800 xt and it does not have the issue. Is it bad vram

perhaps. I got it from a friend who upgraded his mac pro 2010 to the 5870 so it could be tough to return it.

MP 2008 8 core 2.8,mac mini hdmi, iPhone4,ipad,ATV2, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 8 gigs ram, running three montitors
