Hi just finished my first build using 2 XFX 5770's..........sure it works fine now but i was thinking of adding in a third for TriFire but my cards are weird and only have room for a single crossfire bridge i was wondering if this is normal or if i should use my warranty and return them
here is a picture of the cards

@shadow

if you look at the first part of the card the slot to put the crossfire connector is too wide and does not fit the connector i was wondering if the card is defective and if i should return it

This is normal on the XFX card, they only have one bridge. I use a Sapphire card for my 2nd 5770 because it allows for Tri/Crossfire. The XFX card only has a single bridge so its the top card in my setup. Hope that helps!

There are different models You probably got the reference model (same one I got) which was lowest priced, it only has one crossfire bridge sadly :(  I remedied that problem by getting a Sapphire 5770 instead of another XFX as they do have two crossfire bridge ports.

Nice pic of the three 5770's!......beautiful :o  !

Good idea about going with Sapphire for GPU #2.....i plan on getting another 5770 soon and didn't even consider that.
