    You mean of the year 2009? This is 2011 as far as I can remember unless I have discovered a way to travel back in time, in which case I better make sure I don't kill my grandfather.

    Two questions:

    If I were to get this to CrossfireX with my reference PowerColor 6950 where would I put it? Top or bottom?

    Does it have the dual BIOS switch?

    Other than the additional fans and the slight OC (which I can do myself), this doesn't seem like much of a deal. If I wanted Modern Warfare 2 I'd have bought it already.

    doesn't matter wether you put it at the top or bottom.
    But I'd put the reference card at the bottom coz it surely will get more airflow.
