Hello,

This might be a stupid question..

I was looking to pickup a new graphics card for my PC. So I was looking at the different ATI cards and since the 5970 has 2 cores.
 Do i need a crossfire enabled motherboard to use both cores on a 5970 for bitcoin mining?

nope. crossfire is for 2 separate graphics cards.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
