this 2 cards i have.
The X800GTO2 uses the R480 core which is the core for the X850. Your CF card has an R420 core. You need an X850 CF card.
Very nice!

Good thing you got it local. You have every right to go down there and request the proper card since they sold you two cards that won't work together. Also, if you can, get two GTO2's since they are faster than regular X800's.

I dont think he can run two GTO2s. He needs a master card. Best thing he can do is unlock the GTO2 to an X850XTPE and get an X850CF.

Right... well I'm not quite up to date on what master cards are out. Just make sure they're the same.

Hmm... I don't think that this combination will work either...
As Jeremy said you must have a master card... you have two options...
Either trade the x800GTO2 for a regular x800, which will be a mistake because X800GTO2 worth much more as it is, and there is also a fairly good chance to unlock it to full 16 pixel pipelines mod, an equivalent of an X850XTPE card.
So you'll possibly need to purchase a x850PRO\\XT\\CF card, but confirm that your card can be unlocked first because you must run identical amount of pipelines on both cards to benefit from crossfire technology...

He already has a regular GTO2 card, and he said he's getting a GTO2 crossfire card. What's wrong with that? Unless they don't actually make a GTO2 master card, because I've never heard of one.
