post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, I will be installing 2 3870's for Crossfire either this weekend or the next and I cant seem to find guides ANYWHERE that show the proper way to go about doing this... Is there? I mean it cant just be i slap the 2 cards in and they wrok fine. Do i put one in install drivers, then restart put second card in the somehopw get the drivers on that card? If anyone knows any good guides on how to do it plz post! I heard about one guide by same Dr. guy? cant dind it though. Thanks!

Alot of people recommend installing one card, booting up, installing the driver then installing the second card.

I had no problem installing both cards at the same time and then installing the driver.
