Hi I'm working on putting a TV as extra monitor since my Cable TV signal is terrible I do have two 6870s typically left in crossfire but the TV doesn't show up if crossfire is on so I've turn it off and now all three displays work until I get an Active DP to hdmi adapter for it, my one worry is that if I leave the crossfire disabled but keep both cards use both cards will it impact ether negatively, Thanks for any help!

1st 6870 is 2X DVI for 2 24 monitors as main desktop
2nd 6870 is 1X HDMI to TV for an extra video disply

The only downside is that you won't get the benefit of crossfire when gaming.

I was thinking about that, I do have to sometimes shut it down period for older games or "crossfire support isnt important" games so I do that already does turning it off and on hit the card?
