    Noob Q here. I just got a new 2.8 MP which obviously came with a 2600 card. I bought a 3870 and have in installed where the 2600 was. Can I put the 2600 in the other 16x slot and use the crossfire cable between the two? What would be the pros/cons of this?

    I'm not a gamer, but edit a lot of HD video in FCP, use PS, AE, C4D, etc. Also want to be able to run XP in bootcamp for some Windows software.

    You can't crossfire cards from different generations. These cards can not be crossfired at all under any operating system. Crossfire doesn't work in OS X.
