    Which card goes where?

    I am trying to install my new crossfire cards but the manual, web page or anywhere else I have tried looking does not say which card goes in which slot. This is kinda important I would think. Can anyone tell me so that I can put my waterblocks on correct the first time.
    I am assuming that the X1950 PCIE 512MB Crossfire card goes in slot 1, the first pci-e slot next the northbridge. This is the card that has 1 DVI monitor connector on top and the double crossfire connector at the bottom.
    And the X1950XTX PCIE 512MB card goes in the 2nd slot. This card has 2 DVI connectors.

    It just completely amazes me that I cannot find this information anywhere.

    Master card in slot 1, slave in slot 2. Then dongle them together.
    Not much else to say.

    Thanks Shell, now I can put my blocks on and continue this upgrade.

    I have a few that I'm going to give a go. Going to replay Stalker wide open this time. Splinter Double Agent now that I will have 3.0 shaders. Some supreme commander and who knows what else. I have so many its scarey.
