hi to you all, i have just come across this forum so have registerd in the

hope that someone can kindly help me. I have a big problem trying to get a sapphire toxic radeon 5870 oc 2GB to work in my pc.  After doing a clean install of windows xp sp3 and a clean 13-4_xp32_dd_ccc_whql install, the pc try's to boot into windows but fails each time after the windows logo goes out and it just reboots over and over. I realize my system is quit old but i only use it to run rfactor and the race 07 series games. Before the upgrade i was using 2x 4870's in crossfire with no issues but i just wanted to run one card instead of the 2 but was struggling with one 4870 with 20 or so cars on the grid, i got stuttering when going around corners so i thought one decent 5870 would do the trick but i just can't get the pc to boot. so i am now wandering if the new card is not compatible with my system so i really hope someone can help me. My system specs are

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card x2

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 LGA775 "Kentsfield" 2.66GHz (1066FSB) - OEM

Tagan PipeRock TG700-BZ 700w Modular BZ Series Power Supply

Biostar TPower I45 Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 3GB (3x1GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel (OCZ2RPR10662GK)

Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer CPU Cooler (Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3/LGA775)


 i hope this is enough info for now

regards to you all
