Will I have problems if one is a sapphire and one is an XFX?

This should work fine. I have two sapphires, but in my experience it goes by the device id and the driver should support both chipsets fine. Therefor, DEVICE0 (main slot) and DEVICE1 (second slot) should work perfectly together as they mine in separate instances Smiley

Even if the core clock speeds are a little different? The Sapphire is 800mhz and the XFX is 775mhz.

they "should" work, but in practice, there are often problems, YMMV

No problem, I'm just being selfish! I want to Get you guys together to work this out, because I'm probably about to get some mismatched 5830s and would love to take off running with no problems!  Grin
