Hi guys, I used to use my single 6850 for 3 monitors. But, I broke the Mini display port on my card so I'm unable too run 3 monitors anymore. I'm wanting to crossfire another 6850 with my current one, so I can run another monitor. Will this work? Also if it does, can I have my main monitor that i use for gaming, plugged in the bottom graphics card, and then my other 2 monitors in the top graphics card? Will this help performance on my main monitor as it's the only monitor plugged into the second graphics card?

Thanks :D

it will work to crossfire another 6850 but I'd put the new one in the top slot and the old one in the next one down. With crossfire you need to plug all the cards into the same card.

Thanks for the reply, what do you mean plug all the cards into the same card? Do you mean plug all the monitors into the same card? Can I not plug 2 in 1 card, then 1 in another? :D
