2x 2900XT 'X-Fire' overclocking advice needed.
I was thinking about getting another 2900XT and running CrossFire, but I was wondering how I would go about overclocking the 2 cards at the same time (I heard you need 2 monitors to do this?)
Also, would a 2900Pro, flashed to XT, work in CrossFire with another 'real' XT? (I thought it would, but Im unsure)
Any advice would be great, thanks

2 monitors? Who the hell told you that?
CrossFire and SLI only supports 1 monitor unless you want a single pane over so many monitors.
Just pop in another 2900(you could get a PRO and flash it to XT to save money) and enable crossfire. You need either 2 8-pin PCIe power connectors or you could just short them to allow for overclocking in overdrive. Or use a third-party application.FXfirstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 7770, 2x4GB DDR3-1600 CL8, PCP&C 400w, 2x1TB

I'd get a better PSU for crossfire.
