ok. thx rolli, but a question or two if u dont mind.
1) should u unpulg the 2x6pins form the bottom card, restart, uninstall the top card (both in device manager), restart, plug the hdmi in the motherboard output, then let new hardware wizard run or install the CCC again ?
these are the correct steps yes ?
2) i read that a 4x PCIe slot will only cause a 10% loss of "utility", but read elsewhere that it only used 1gig p/s and the card itself is capable of way way way more. i suppse what im asking is that with my motherboard, what are the losses I should expect. i guess i dont even know if its PCIe 2 4x or 1 4x.
