I have a 4870 and I was wondering if I could crossfire it with with a 4850 or do I need to have a another 4870 to do it?

More about : crossfire 4870 4850

Sorry I know this isn't on topic but my similar card isn't working and I would please like to know what driver you are using?

Also as far as I know it shouldn't be a problem then again don't quote me on it!

You can Crossfire the 4870 with a 4850 depending on the motherboard used but I wouldn't recommend it. It would just drag down the performace of the 4870 to match the 4850. You would be far better off getting a second 4870.

Using CAT 8.10 on two 4870's in Crossfire here.

Strange, 8.10 won't work on 4850. Any idea why?

8.10 works fine on my 4850

Ok sorry to be a pain and jack your thread, but would it work fine on yours but not mine?

Hardware?
It can't be software because my HD was clean and all my components were new, when I first tried to install the Driver it was the first one the computer had ever seen!
