I have applied two "XFX HD 6850s" in crossfire to my Sabertooth x58 MOBO. It seems the voltage is locked at 800mhz. When im sure I could push em to 840mhz(mabey) and 1100mhz on the Memory clock (again mabey). I have it set at 840/1095 in overdrive. But with the lock it wont go that high right?
Also I have an extra video card slot begging to be used. And have seen people use 2 ATI cards and an Nvidia card for PHYS EX. I just happen to have a brand new in the box BFG OCd 9800gtx 512 mb card and was wondering if it would be compatible.
I really am a NOOB at this. So i prohably should not be even thinking of doing this. lol

In the manual does the BFG OCd 9800gtx 512 mb card say it is phys ex enabled?

Sorry took so long Nasty. :(
I actually changed my mind. I had it ready to go. But looking at the limited amount of games it helps, made me change my mind. And yes phyes was enabeled. It would have worked but wasnt worth the effort.

With two 6850s that machine should run anything you toss at it and in style!

Adding the old Nvidia card would have added old PHYS EX tech anyway, there are always newer features with the newer cards.
