check the info on the cards in GPU-Z, if they don't show any difference hardware wise, i wouldnt worry about it.

Just try CrossFire both of your cards and check it with GPU-Z or just play some games...
If you find something happened then you can RMA your card.
Still on warranty, right?

One is thinner than the other and it has got only one DVI slot. I guess the thicker one was made earlier because earlier 5770 series cards were thicker occupying two slots at the back of the PC case. I would RMA the thicker one in a cross-fire environment because it is an earlier model.

used GPUz to check specs, they are exactly the same except for the BIOS, they are both Juniper i would have preferred the black thicker one having 2 Crossfire headers opening up for triple crossfire because the crimecraft one only had one crossfire header
