I have two rigs so when i have someone over i can throw the 4870 in my spare rig and have the 4890 in my main rig...when im running solo i can run crossfire
Before the 4890 i was running a 9800GT in my spare rig and a 4870 in my main rig....with this setup my secondary gets a nice boost and so does my primary
Ok,if you give my "correct way to set up xfire"a go,see if this works for you,no guarantees though,lol!!
If you look in CCC,"information centre",graphics hardware,look for the "linked adapter",this will show you the speed the secondary card is running at,you probably know this anyway.
