Default Cross fire two Radeon HD4850

hi guys im going to crossfire two hd4850 cards but i have a question, i found a card that visual looks the sameas myn, exactly the same cooling unit ect, but on gpu-z the subvendor is different does the matter? my cards sub vendor is - ATI (1002) and the card im looking at buying is DELL (1028), will they work together or will this cause major problems?

both cards have 512mb

is there anything else i need to be aware of before purchasing?

comparing the gpu-z info i can see the bios is different on the two cards aswell

As long as the chip itself (4850) is the same then it doesn't matter. For future ref, you could have put this in your other thread.

Yes by chip, I mean the chip being physically a 4850 will match and Crossfire to any other 4850 or even a 4850x2.

I suppose since you already have a 4850 this would be the cheapest GPU upgrade option since you can get one so cheap.
