Basically I have a 4870 when i'm currently using a 6970 is it possible to use the 4870 and the 6970 to on the same machine for bitcoin or will this cause problems? Using win 7.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

It would be fine.  Just remember (on Windows), you'll need a dummy plug, or need to switch which card your monitor is hooked up to to start mining on your second card.

I have 2 monitors so this should not be a problem, thanks for the help Smiley
