    My crossfire setup is decent, but it seems to be flickering all the time, as if something is out of sync, like maybe a bad refresh rate.

    Note i have some KDS usa piece of shit wal-mart monitor, and i have to use the DVI adapter, could this be why?

    So really anyone who is using a crossfire setup and is have the the same symptoms, please state wether or not u are using the dvi adapter as well.

    And for those using a crossfire setup and not using the dvi adapter and have somthing like a LCD screen, and dont seem to be having problems with flickering or tearing please state that too.

    I thing it could just be my monitor. 120 bucks down the drain coulda save up to 200 and got a decent LCD screen widscreen too.... but F%^*& no i had to spend it on a crappy one, because i freaked when my old one fried and i was outta a monitor... :shadedshu

    make sure you are running with Vsync on. If it is turned off, you can experience thse problems.

    I don't think it would be your monitor, but you never know.

    I had similar issues with my first CF card. Now frankly I personally think it was the dongle as I pretty much troubleshot everything else possible. you can check out my thread over at DH regarding my issues. My 2nd CF card has been "flicker free" and have no issues with it.
