Hello,

I have used my HD4850 for a long time and almost a year ago I bought a HD7870.

Friends of mine started to mine LiteCoins and I started to find some interest in it. So I also wanted to mine.

One of them said you could use your old Graphics Card and mine on that while the other can still be used to play games.

 

So I tried to plug in my HD4850 and everything went alright till I started my Computer and landed on desktop.

Catalyst Control Center said I had the wrong driver for the appropriate hardware.

 

Now my question is, is it possible to use my HD4850 as a secondary GPU?

 

NOTE: I did NOT use a crossfire cable for it.

I've got it working.

I did some more research and I found out that I had to install a legacy driver.

But thanks for your answer.
