Hi , I have recently rebuilt my system upgrading from a phenom 965 BE to an 8350FX and sabertooth 990FX my system is liquid cooled and in the old system I ran 2 4870 X2's with full cover water blocks by XPC in crossfire mode and apart from a few driver issues it ran pretty well.My computing needs have changed somewhat recently and whilst building the new system I realised that I wanted or rather needed to be able to mirror my desktop to my hdTV .The soltion for me was to use a HP TV connect wireless system to transmit full HD to the HDTV ( for logistics reasons I can't simply connect using a HDMI cable ) , I had'nt realised that the 2 4870 X2's don't have an HDMI port so I purchased a single XFX  HD 6850 and have been using that as my only card with no probs , it was'nt until I ran a visualiser in windows media player that I noticed the 6850 was'nt giving me the frame rates that I had with the 2 4870X2's, my question is can I  use all 3 cards 2 water cooled and one air cooled in my system at the same time can I use the 4870's for gaming and visualisations and the 6850 for the HDTV only ? hope this makes sense , all replies would be much appreciated , thanks , Gary .

Can't use the cards together, the HD 4000 series is legacy and uses a different driver set.

There's still a Search box that people aren't using.
