Only 1 of the cards came with a bridge. A guy in Denmark offered to send me 2 of the longer crossfire bridges for free. So they're on their way tomorrow I guess.

And I have just discovered that the sapphire causes flickering and screen corruption during 3dmark when I overclock it to 900/1000 from 850/975, and the XFX seems to have no problem with it. The guy I bought the sapphire from told me he would swap me for his XFX, prior to me finding this problem. Hopefully he still will.

Try doing this: Remove 1 card, download 3D mark 03 and run it. You might want overclock it and run it again for kicks and giggles.
Then, run the other card the same way. Obviously jot down all your scores. Then run it in Crossfire, see what the point increase is at stock speeds, then overclocked.

I'd swap the cards and rerun it in CFX just for curiosities sake, but that's just me.

The sapphire just needed the voltage increased for that overclock. It's fine. I'm jotting down the scores as I go. Next test is CFX overclocked to 900/1000.

EDIT: well, the best 3dmark score so far came from 3GHz, DDR500 and both cards in crossfire and not overclocked. 12,410 for now.

EDIT: and here is the first dose of real world results......running GTR2 with the usual grid of 11 cars, 16x/16x, 1600x1200 and everything maxed out completely I averaged 60 FPS during a 6 lap race @ Imola, which is my usual test track because it is tougher on the video card for some reason.(and 80 FPS @ Monaco just for another example) I was only averaging ~45 at Imola before, and that was with track detail medium and track draw distance normal, and shadows medium @ like 1152x864 or 1024x768. Pretty big improvement. I can't wait to install Dirt2 next weekend. ......ohhh and get a new monitor.

I've yet to test my 8600GS in the AM3 with a game but the 7600GS likes it.
Noted a definite increase in what it can do but no tweaking with the AMD chipset. Too bad my other 8600 bought the farm earlier so I need to get at least two other cards for running SLI with a 939.

As for performance, that's to be expected I think but I'm not sitting on these GPU's - I'm already looking to order some ATI cards for use with the AM3, hopefully four since it's a Quad Crossfire MB. These should work with the 939 too so it's not like I can't swap them as I need to for a real comparison. Between my DFI Expert and the A8N32 SLI Deluxe, I believe the Asus is the better of the two for gaming performance anyway.
At least I know in some respects it actually beats the DFI.

Yeah, I also need to look into another monitor sooner or later before the trusty CRT goes. It's a 21' Viewsonic G800 that's coming up on ten years old and still games as good as it ever did right now but when temps are cool or cold, it appears to not come on until it warms up. When it does start showing a display, it's all fuzzy and dark looking but as it operates, this goes away, usually in about ten minutes or so max.

Used to not do that so I know the years of useage have caught up with it. Right now with warmer weather here, it does fine when I turn it on.

I just finished uploading my poor quality Double-Barrel-Roll on a Utah track in Dirt 2. I had to use my digital camera at time of recording so there is some redish and green/blue lines on the screen and a fair warning you may want to mute the audio on this one. I'm still working on finding a free media converter for uploading video's to Youtube. In any case check it out just past the 1.15 minute mark.

Oh and since I'm on the Barrel Rolls I found this pretty cool Barrel Roll Montage video of Dirt 2 which I believe is a must see for any Dirt 2 players.

I sure hope the game isn't all about how many fake stunts you can do. I just want to race, and not do stunts that are actually impossible. Graphics look good. I am looking forward to the installation this weekend.
EDIT:eehhhhhhhh.......maybe a couple fake stunts will be ok ................................................

I'm amazed that I can overclock my cpu and ram so much further on my ASUS A8R32 MVP Deluxe.

Don't worry it's a pure off road racing game. I just wanted to take a video of a barrel roll I did while racing. Most of the time when you get air born like that you end up on your side or up side down on the roof/hood of your car and need a reset but this time I did not crash and kept going. Once I uploaded my barrel roll video I noticed the second link I posted up there of the barrel roll montage .

I always wanted to get one of those A8R32MVP boards. But I decided to go with the SLI one when I bought it.

A little OT: I'm so freakin pissed at D2D. My transactions (yes plural) never went though. I missed out on Dirt 2 and STALKER.

DO I need to have my pop up blocker off when ordering?

You should have got an instant email confirmation when you ordered
did you set up an account
Sorry to hear about that...

I don't know about the pop up blocker thing
I had no issues w/my order and it was my first time ordering w/them. IDK what happened on your end
