Easy!

  1. Turn off your computer. Open up the system to expose the internal components (i.e. motherboard, CPU, power supply, etc).
  2. Install second Radeon HD 6850 into the second PCI-E X16 slots (black coloured).
  3. Connect the necessary PCI-E 6pin and/or 8pin connections, from the power supply to the graphics card.
  4. Connect necessary CrossfireX Bridge connection.
  5. Put computer cover back on.
  6. Make sure your monitors are connected to the primary (top) card.
  7. Turn your computer back on.
  8. Enable CrossfireX in AMD Catalayst Control Center.
  9. Done.
