Have you installed the drivers for your video card? It might just be using a stardard vga driver for it, since that is a relatively new peice of hardware I question if windows has built in support.

Also read this:

Basically it supports the arguement that radoen's suck for gaming. I really hate to say it being a radeon user myself, but they are some really crappy cards has far as drivers, software and support by the gaming industry imo.

Yea, I love the driver set up for Gforce. They even make it a breeze for linux users. One drive for all cards. Shaweeeeeet.

Sorry hyperx, I know this dosen't help you but Gforce seems to usally win out in gaming. Although I heard x-box will be going ATI for the next gen console

The forum doens't allow HTML code. Additionally UBBCode doesn't allow for this option.

You CAN however just link to the image..

-OR-
You can save a small image and a large image and link them on the forum... This would act like what you wanted...
Code:
[url=http://www.url.of/the/large/image.jpg][img]http://www.url.of/the/small/image.jpg[/img][/url]
