I have a MSI 890FXA-GD70 and im trying to crossfire two Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) cards (item # N82E16814102858 @ Newegg). I have the latest drivers installed as well as the latest Catalyst software. I attached a crossfire bridge to each of the crossfire pin slot thingys (sorry dont know what their called lol) so i have 2 crossfire bridge wire things attached to them and both cards are plugged into 16x PCI-e 2.0. Now for my questions:

1. How do i know that the 2 PCI slots are running at 16x and not 8x?

2. I checked the box next to "Enable Crossfire" in Catalyst but when i click the "Crossfire Status" tab the box is blank, is this normal (IE how do i know Crossfire is working)?

3. I plan on using Eyefinity but im currently using 2x DVI-D monitors, i have the 3rd monitor but im waiting for the active displayport to DVI-D adapter in the mail, how do i get my games to open on fullscreen mode on specific monitors? (IE i want one instance of Eve-Online on screen 1, another instance of Eve-Online on screen 3, and World of Warcraft on screen 2). Do i have to open these programs in window mode and just move them and leave them in window or is there a way to have them fullscreen on specific monitors?
