Default Got my second 4870, How do I crossfire???

Might be a dumb question but how do I do it... Is it as simple as installing the second card, connecting the cables to each other and that's it?

Not sure if there are specific drivers I need, or if some other setup in BIOS or CCC... Any help would be appreciated...

Nope, just throw the bridge on, plug in the Power Connector into your second, then you'll need to have Catalyst Control Center installed... and enable Crossfire in the settings

Then your done

Crossfirex is actually enabled by default. Plug in 2nd card, put BOTH bridges on, boot up.

I swear every single time i pull my cards out, i forget to put my bridges back on.
Nothing to see here.
