    8 GB RAM???? Take it it's a 64bit o/s? Are both drives identical and working? Are you following the instructions correctly after post? Have you enabled raid in bios?

    okay ill explain in further detail
    the system boots fine with the graphics card installed just when i add the the 2320 in it wont boot

    i think its due to asus sharing the irq of the two ports due to crossfire

    Okay well if you suspect this why don't you remove the card. Go into bios and change the irq of gfx cards. Is the raid card pci or pci express?

    Thought it would. Certainly i've found most (especially) Asus boards to let you do this. I agree this could be the problem. Boot in with one drive and crossfire then change the irq from device manager. I'm sure it can be done this way. Good Luck, Max.

    Ah, so you're not actually using xfire? Have you tried it? Can't you disable xfire from bios then maybe, hopefully you should be able to get seperate irq's? Max.

    Maybe you're right as xfire works differently from sli and the ports could be linked. But try to disable xfire from bios if you can. Max
