    Just added a 2nd 5870 and did a quick test on Vantage and got below score now i know my motherboard only does 8x8 across the lanes.

    3DMark Score P24720
    CPU Score 18417
    Graphics Score 27903

    Does that seem ok or a bit low ? i just put the cores at 900 for the test and left voltage etc on stock.

    Things were looking good but BF BC2 just crashed out had 4 games on a trot, fps wise was hitting 130 in places and mostly around 100+ very fast.

    Was that with both of them at stock speeds? i heard of crossfire issues of crashes in BFBC2 where cards have been clocked but at stock they been fine so try that out.

    The fps you state for BFBC2 sounds correct.

    AMD Catalyst 10.4 addressed the BFBC2 issues right?

    You need to compare GPU scores only guys, too many other variables in the overall score

    Is that your GPU score as your I7 will be quicker than mine, in bad company 2 @ 1920x1200 all max and everything max in CCC and aa on max it didn't dip below 100 fps.

    I just added a second 4890 in crossfire and got 25977 in 3DMark06 which I was delighted with as it only cost me 100 quid or so to upgrade.

    If I'd spent over 600 quid and got the score you did I would have been very disppointed.

    I got a score of P26,000-ish and X15,900-ish with my HD 5870 Vapor-X CrossFireX setup so I'd say that's about right for your PC, particularly as I'm using PCI-E 2.0 16x for both cards and you admit to only having 8x. I'm using the newest 10.4a preview drivers.
