Is this a question or a fact? I'd like to know that too.....but I don't think 4x PCI-E 2.0 will be a problem.

Yeah tried the same, installed the last 11.11 from catalyst, and no solution to this wierd fact. While crossfire is active i run msi afterburner to check fps and gpus load, once on bf3 the numbers start to get crazy and show that only 1 cpu its getting all duty while the other turns idle, i pres alt+tab and then all monitoring software suddenly start to show that xfire is working normal but once i get to bf3 again the same strange odd starts to happen all over, What the hell? this is nonsense. What's up with the drivers???, ill try by uninstalling bf3 and installing once more, but im pretty sure it wont work!. Whats up with the software industry?? and AMD drivers support, please can you both get an apointment and get together discuss on creating better drivers for a fine gaming experience, for christ sake!.mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

msi AB is a joke. Took me 3 months to figure out that the program was creating crashes for BC2... I wouldn't use it to monitor anything while gaming... try doing without... but yeah AMD drivers are a joke. mine are FINALLY working right

Yeah, I found out AB was causing crashes in BC2 after about one week... everyone was saying it was PB and Realtek audio... nope, it was MSI AB for me.

Thinking of getting a 6850 as one of my HD5770s died on me yesterday (so it's better than one HD5770 & I can CrossFireX it later when I get more cash). Which model is best? I have been looking at the XFX Black Edition and the Sapphire as they are the two cheapest I have found in the UK yet at £120 each respectively.

In amazon.co.uk for 15 more pounds you can get the XFX 6870, its a boost over the 6850. You should consider it. Anyway I got Sapphire model of 6850 in Xfire and they are cool.

Sapphire make good stuff, go for it. Between cross of 6850's and 6870's theres little difference, the 6870's xfired can manage higher resolutions thats all (Nice 1920x1080 gaming). Think on how much money are u willing to spend. Good luck.

It's an extra £20 as there's a £5 P&P charge on it. It's on the wrong end of my budget as I'm having to lean more towards £100 than £150 (plus I'm not the one paying for it).

 

I hear the 6850s overclock really well aswell. I'm leaning toward the XFX as it's the Black Edition.

 

I'm also looking at a used 5870 aswell though I'm not really sure how a single one of those stacks up against a single 6850/6870.
