I was wondering how I would go about setting this up, or if it was even possible?
Onboard HD 4200
Sapphire HD 6850 2gb
Windows 7 ultimate x64
latest Vision Engine Control Center

Thanks! :bounce:

no can do. hybrid xfire can only be enabled on lower end on board and lower end cards.......... stupid huh ? no real benefit there.

depending on res and games and settings that 2gig 6850 should be pretty good, no ?

It won't work for two reasons

1. The onboard HD4200 is several generations older than your 6850, it does not have the same API specifications either. Crossfire cards need to be within the same family

2. The HD4200 is many many times less powerful than the 6850, enough so that even if it was possible to put them in crossfire it would slow things down tremendously
