I was looking to get a second video card, but it has been deactivated for some time now, so...

Is this...
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100247L Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

the same as this...
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100243L Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I know the title matches, etc, just want to make sure crossfire will work fine with them. The only difference is the model number?

Thanks


-Edit-
Well, it seems its no longer deactivated, go figure. Still, what is the difference between the two cards?

--Edit--
Well, deactivated, again. So, back to my original question.

Does anyone know if there is any significant difference between those 2 video cards?

The specs say its the exact same card..

I guess they pulled of the other to give the GRID Game free I guess?
