Same Model card for Crossfire ??

So iv amlost certainly decided to Crossfire my Asus EAH5870 V2 to another 5870. As this card is classed as a second revision what are the problems i could incure if i buy say a sapphire or xfx rev1 5870 and clock it to the same. Furthermore is there infact no known issues at all ??.

Thx in advance guys

just remember that if you overclock your cards the v1 might not OC the same as your V2

Yeah revisions of the same model don't make any difference- as long as they're the same model

They don't even have to be the same model man. Well, not unless they changed it all with the 5 series.
