I've been trying to set up my 5770 to mine. I installed different version of the SDK, I installed the opencl driver, I tried rolling back the driver (which I can't do btw because the installer says it's already installed no matter how much ATI stuff/drivers I uninstall). After installing the opencl driver, gpu caps only recognizes it for the cpu.

Anyway that was a week ago and I kinda gave up and decided to download bitcoin-miner to see if I could get some more performance out of mining on my cpu. Lo and behold, it says "Using SSE2, GPU Juniper", and starts mining at +-90mhash/s! Then I tried disabling cpu mining on it and it goes up to 110 mhash/s.

So what's the deal here, I can't use my gpu on any of the other mining utilities, but I can on this one but at a seemingly slower speed than it should be?

BTW, in trying to fix my driver issues, I uninstalled CCC, and now when I try to reinstall it it says it's also already installed. Since it isn't, I can't even use it to OC my card anymore. Yes i mad.

Also, after I save some money mining bitcoins, I may want to upgrade to a 6xxx card for gaming and mining. Do you think I'll have less issues, or is it more an OS/hardware problem?

with regards to your driver issues i had similar issues with my 5870. I downloaded driver sweeper v2.5 and used it in safe mode. Everything was clean as a whistle then. DId a fresh install of ccc 11.5 and SDK 2.4. Dnt mine using ur gpu and cpu at the same time, pointless. just do gpu
