What are your full system specs?(CPU,RAM.etc.)

What brand of the card you already owned and what brand is the new card?

Sounds to me like a defective card.Have you tried using the new card by itself?

My guess is that BF3 fully utilized the card and it blew something out because of a faulty part.A 6870 crossfire is a very nice setup so don't let this incident deter you from it.

Just out of curiosity what was the brand of the new card?
