    Default Does this sound right?

    Hey guys im new to the forum and have a pretty general question, so if anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it

    I have just recently assembled a rig with the following specs
    9850 BR processor running at stock
    4 gigs Corsair DDR2 ram 800 mhz
    2 visiontek 4870's running in corssifre (I hope)
    500 gig western digital sata HD
    MSI K9 motherboard (crossfire)

    situation : just installed the 2nd 4870 and connected the crossfire interlinks, Both 4870's are recognized in device manager but when I go to catalyst and try the GPU check a big number one flashes on my screen (I assume this means 1 GPU detected). I ran 3dmark06 and wound up getting a score of 14300 does this seem correct? I really hate to think that 2the setup I have performs so abysmally. I am hoping that the other card isnt recognized in Xfire. Is there anythjing I can do to circumvent this issue?

    That score is for only 1 4870. Make sure that your cards are seated properly as I have the same problems now and then with my 2 Asus 8800GTs and reseating fixed the problem. Give it a try.
