hello everyone,
new to the forums and would just like to say there is a ton of information here that has helped me in the past,glad to be here and keep up the great work.
now on to my question(s): i recently completed my newest PC build and i'm quite happy with the results of my work,(not like the the pc's i have seen on this sites gallery but i'm getting there :D).i have 2 his 4650's in my rig,i know these are budget cards but that what i can afford at this time,i'm not completely sure if these cards are running in crossfire. i know that i don't need a bridge for these to work. i have downloaded CPUZ and GPUZ to see if both cards show up,which they do,but in the CCC it only appears to be running one of the 4650's. crossfire is enabled and all the drivers have been installed. should i remove both cards and drivers,then reinstall one card and its drivers one at a time? i have also heard the use of windows vista is the only way to have both cards get identified by the OS to make them useful.not sure if that is also true,if some one can enlighten me about this i would really appreciate it. ill will throw up my rigs spec's if that will help:

2 HIS hd4650 radeon 1 gb each video cards

If you have crossfire enabled in CCC then it should be working. Both cards will only show up as one card. If i were you i would download MSI Afterburner and just check the percentage of each card being used. They should be close to evenly used. if you have one card with 0% used then crossfire isn't working. Then and only then would i reinstall drivers. Well that's if you are using the newest 10.8 driver release. I would update to 10.8 if not, they seem to be pretty solid drivers. I just updated mine to 10.8 last night and they seem to be better! :toast:

EDIT: You should join the crossfire club! there is a lot of good info there.
