Is there a Crossfire walkthrough?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Going to be adding a second Graphics card (2nd 5830) and was wondering if there is a step by step walk through it anywhere? Also anyhting I should keep in mind before I buy the second card?

It's generally a good idea to remove all drivers before you install the second card, then install NEW drivers with both cards and the crossfire bridge attached.
