In steam, can you add the flags in "Set launch options" . The shortcut for it isn't the windowed mode.

Redone guide, fixed some spelling errors and added some new stuff.

Enjoy

Also, anyone else have some ideas what could be added?

What program are you using to see if it's using both your GPU's?

RivaTuner, the graphing thingey.

Could you please test if you see load on both GPUs on the 4850's?

Thanks

Well one of my harddrives died last night after a long battle with dead sectors... I have to go out and buy a pair of WD Black 640gb's and set everything back up. Hopefully I'll be up and running tonight and I'll get back to you.
