    Default Change out Video cards?

    Hey Guys,
    I running two Radeon HD5870s in crossfire and 3DMark11 at 3200 is this good for gamming or should I scrap the cards and start again?Not up on new cards!

    Motherboard Z77X-UD5H
    Proc. I7-3770K 4.43GHz
    Mem 16gb
    Video 1-HD5870
    Video 2-HD5870
    Windows 7 Ultimate
    Power Antec 1000

    Also is their a way to check that both cards show-up? When I use Catalyst Control it shows Enable crossfire is on but not for sure that both cards
    are working.
    Thanks for the help...

    OK went and moved the crossfire ribbon to #2 slot and ran arecheck on 3DMark. I would think that moving the ribbon should not matter! A lot higher score.<o:p></o:p>
    Score
    P8510 3DMarks


    Graphics Score
    8413


    Physics Score
    10592
