Identify which graphics card your motherboard specifies as no 1 (usually it will be the upper one if your PC is a "normal" desktop style box). Plug your DVI cable from this card to your monitor. Now you just need to switch the PC on, install ATI's latest driver, reboot and then make sure the Crossfire box is ticked in Catalyst Control Centre. Job done, and enjoy your framerates. :)

It would be the card in the 1st PCI-E slot and use the DVI connector that is next to the displayport and HDMI connectors.
