lol, he's runs $1000 worth of cards, yet he lets windows choose his drivers for him.... I would have stopped listening to him there
Did he mention whether it was XP or Vista, x32 or x64? Did he also mention what games he's tried? Some games simply don't play nice with xfire, or SLI for that matter.
It's definitely a driver
issue. The last known 'working' xfire release was Catalyst 8.10 . From 8.11 onwards is where it gets flaky. The downside to the older drivers is that you'll miss out on quite a few game optimizations. Apparently 8.10 was also that last driver release to show the crossfire option in CCC. 8.11 onwards it's 'automatically enabled'.
Do both cards show up as installed in Device Manager? If not, try enabling the second card and see if it helps.
It's not necessarily a mobo issue, as a lot of people with a wide range of setups experience xfire problems.
Conversely, some people have zero issues with it
As a last ditch, not recommended method, try installing the x32 drivers. Some have claimed this has worked on x64 systems.
