Yeah, I have testing more with Catalyst 11.5, and cannot use Trifire in BFBC2 without crashing. I MUST disable crossfirex or I will BSOD, or CTD everytime after a matter of minutes. In other games however it works just fine, no issues. So long OCZ 700watt... you will not be forgotten, but utilized in another build. I was thinking that the low framerates were due to my power supply being too low, and that was indeed part of the problem. I ordered a new 1000watt with pretty decent amperage rates on 4 rails, and partial modular.. Installed yesterday and tested to see if that could be the problem. The frame rates went up with a huge noticeable increase (without changing anything) my video cards were being starved for power. Drivers are still slow, but the game is MUCH smoother even with only the 4870x2 being utilized in BFBC2. After testing, I also turned down AA, AF, and some other options, which did make a difference. I believe you are correct when you say my CPU could be another case I need to look into. I was maxed out 100% on 4 cores while playing!! I have NEVER maxed this CPU on ANY game before, although it seems to be meeting its match. Guess waiting for the bulldozer is the next upgrade leap I am going to take..
