Cards can over heat but usually not only purchase 2 cards if $ & mobo allow while xfire / sli Graph are great most games are fine on a 512 to 1 gb card anyway and also bdepends on the cpu mobo combo that goes with it

Looking for a schematic to a ATI radion graphics card, pn# 109-9420-01, but still works fairly well. the caps are leaking and thinking about replacing them can't read P/n# though.


These schematics are almost impossible to obtain unless you are an employee.
It is a lot easier to buy a used replacement card on Ebay
If the capacitors are leaking, I would check to case cooling fan.
The case is probably running too hot.

I have 4870 installed. i want to activate Second


Running two ATI cards is CrossFire not SLI, and no, you cannot run those two cards together. I am assuming you are reffering the the Video game Second life. The 4870 is still a beast of a card, I find it next to impossible it wont run the game. Make sure you have the latest CCC driver from game.amd.ati.com

My system sees this graphic card (4870) as ATI 4800.WHY?


It will say that because is between the integer of 4800-4895. It doesn't mean the system thinks it's a 4800 it just means it's in that series. Shouldn't be causing you any problems however as the hardware will do all the work regardless of what Windows thinks it is. The catalyst utility should be more accurate by the way,

No, the units will conflict with eachother. If you are using the add on card, you must disable the onboard card.
