    So I have 3 screens on my Mac Pro and pretty much since I installed my 3870 the 2 20" screens redraw weird. I really only notice it in Preview and System Preferences (Desktop & Screen Saver and Displays).

    It's most annoying in Preview since I'm not in System Preferences all that much but... yeah. Anyway some screenies below along with my lane configuration in case that matters. The 30" is ran on the 3870 with the 2 20"'s on the x1900.

    I suspect the graphics card is failing. Is the computer under warranty?

    I think it's still under warranty. It's just odd because those are the only two apps I know of that exhibit this behavior. I might just wait till Snow Leopard is out to see if that fixes it...

    You can check your warranty status here.

    I'm not sure what else to tell you, frankly. You could try reinstalling the OS (I know, I know, it's the Windows way out).

    Preview does this from time to time for me... I think it may just be a weird interface bug, because it affects nothing else and closing the window gets rid of it.
