    Yes, but they will run at the speed and memory of the slower card.

  2. GREAT thanks for the fast response the bidding ends in 10 mins, will i have to under clock the black edition or will that be done automatically?
  3. I'm a little late, but it will do it automatically. If you won the card, that seems like a pretty good price.

  4. The way Radeon setup their crossfire is that as long as its the same BASIC GPU you can crossfire it. So, technically you could crossfire at 6850 with a 6870, or a 5850 and a 5870, or a 6950 and 6970, and they will just automatically run at the speed of the slower card.

    Its a little different than the way Nvidia setup their dual card solutions, which have to be the same GPU.

    Brands, clock speeds, memory doesn't matter as much, as both cards will run at the lowest setting, be it a slower speed or reduced memory.

    I hope you got it and I hope its awesome!
