I'm running two different 5850 video cards. Battlefield 3 crashes all the time. Although I think it may be an internet connection problem, I'd like to test each one of my video cards to see if that is the problem. Is there a way to do this?

Install only one card at a time and test it. Have you set up crossfire?

I'm not sure what kind of crash it is. Usually the screen freezes and the last image I was seeing is frozen on the screen. The last sounds I was hearing get repeated in a 1/8 second fast loop. Then the screen goes black and then returns to the desktop. Sometimes when the game crashes it goes to an image of way outside the map, looking towards the map from a weird angle, usually way below the map. Sometimes I Skype and when it starts crashing the audio in Skype lowers then mites then goes to a hissing static sound. Sometimes it will automatically reconnect, usually it just drops the connection completely.
