Could reinstalling windows in stealth mode have any thing to do with it? And if so is there any way to remedy that?

Oh, I was talking about one of the Alienware's features where it slows down the cooling fans at the expense of performance. I think it may have possibly been that stealth mode may have interfered with installation

Possibly try reinstalling a clean copy of windows, then popping in the drivers from Dell.

If that fails, perhaps Dell/Alienware support would give you a recovery CD with the drivers necessary on it, unless you already have that?

I have the recovery disks and unfourtunately a clean wipe did not solve the problem. I reinstalled all the drivers straight fomr the Alienware disk. Ati's CCC still came back an installation log putting the 2nd 4870 as an "other device" thus not installed =(
