Mac Radeon 7950 with 3 Dell U2412M's (Resolution incorrectly reported)
A reader that replaced this 5870 card with a 7950 wrote that the native resolution under OS X 10.9.2 for all 3 Dell U2412M (1920x1200) monitors is reported as 2560x1600. Due to length I posted his comments on a separate page. If anyone has a suggestion or tip for Dave, let me know. Thanks. (I rarely use Mavericks and (so far) only with a single display.)
(Update: Dave later said OS X 10.9.3 beta seems to have fixed this problem. After a few reboots, all displays recognized at correct native res.)
