    I update my drivers by installing the new over the old.

    Terry Makedon does it this way so I figured that approach was good enough for me.

    I use Crossfire and was wondering if it's best to disable Crossfire when you install the new drivers over the old, or just leave it enabled?

    Does it matter?

    i have an x2 so i cant exactly disable crossfire, install overtop works fine & makes a single restart

    you need to restart right? non CF is supposed to install without a restart, while CF restarts

    If you're ever playing a game where there isn't a good Crossfire profile out for it and performance is terrible on your X2, disable CAT AI. That will turn off onboard crossfire on the X2. Your card will behave like a single HD 4870 1Gb. When a profile isn't around yet that may be desirable. I've seen X2s perform worse than a single card without a Crossfire profile in some games.
