Hi, I know this might be a stupid question seeing as how they are basically the same thing
(except the price, which is a difference of about 150 bucks), but I was wondering if I'd be ok buying a "Sapphire Radeon Hd 6970" and crossfiring it with my current "Diamond AMD Radeon HD 6970?? The Diamond edition is kinda hard to find for a good price, so I figured I'd see if I could buy a Sapphire for about $100 and stick it in there. As far as I know (cause I'm noob status ova hea) the Clock speeds, Mem speeds and everything else is basically the same....

Yes, there should be no issue as long as they both work OK by themselves. You will probably want to uninstall the gfx driver/re-install it when both cards are in place. What MB will these be going into?

OK. Just wanted to be sure the 2nd slot wasn't x4 lanes.
