    Is this an ok way to go? Are any of you having troubles running 4850's in crossfire in Vista 64? Im thinking of picking up a second 4850 this afternoon, but want to be certain there are no current conflicts or anything out there with drivers and 64 vista. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I will make it simple when I post. Check my specs <<<<<<<<<

    I will run a few rounds of Gears of War, Crysis I guess, Mass Effect, UT3. Those are the games im playing now. Then a run of 3D mark. Then comapre it to the crossfire setup. Both are 2.0 cards running at full 16x.

    It looks like it should work

    Offtopic but do you use anything like washers to seperate the screws from the PCB on the Zalman?
