    Crossfire and RAM Question

    Post by Drifalgar on Wed May 14, 2008 6:34 pm

    I'm pretty new to building PC's. I'm set up for Crossfire, but how do I actually check to see if it set up correctly? Is there some kind of testing prog. I could use? Thanks for the help.

    If you needed, I have two X1950 Pro's.

    Oh Oh, also curious. Im still running Windows XP SP2. I have 4Gb RAM, but Im only recognizing 3Gb. Any reason for that?

    Thanks

    Windows 32bit is only capable of addressing 3.478GB (something like that) of RAM. in order to take advantage of the full 4GB you'd have to run a 64bit OS. Assuming you're using the ATI Catalyst driver, from what I recall they're is an option in the CCC to turn Crossfire on and off. I can't say for sure as I dont run Crossfire, but I seem to remember it that way.
