    I have some questions about crossfire before I put down my cash.I already have a crossfire ready 1900xt card.I know I need a master card for the dongle.Is it worth it going with a 1900gt crossfire card with it or will it hurt performance?Can I get the dongle by itself?Ati has 2 on there website,one listed for the 1900 and one listed for the 850!Are they the same?Any help is greatly appreciated.I cant find this info anywhere....

    the master card will bring the other card u r using to match wit the the master card in saying... if u have a x1900xtx and the master card is a x1900xt the master card will lower the x1900xtx speeds to x1900xt

    no no the master card will put the cards at the same settings so in saying also if the master card is a x1900xt and the other card is a gt the settings of the master card will become a gt
