Recent Steam hardware survey

Reciently steam had my computer hardware info uploaded to them through a survey they were doing. The survey claimed that I did not have crossfire capabilities, when in fact I have two radeon hd 4770's with crossfire enabled. I just wanted to draw attention to this issue in case its more than just my info being reported incorrectly. I wouldn't want valve to get incorrect user hardware info to go off of in making new products.

Submitting a ticket or emailing valve would yield better results than posting here where valve employee's rarely frequent.

Don't bother about that, the survey can never get it right, I've NEVER been 'certified' by the survey as having CF/CFX, but I've been CF/CFX system since....a while back. Went from 2x HD2900XT's to 2x HD3870 X2's to 2x HD5870, and I'm not 'CF'ed' according to the survey. Sort of like WEI - Windows Experience Index - scored 6.0 (out of possible 7.9) for 2x HD5870.....does that sound right to you?

The WEI sucks. Windows can't even properly identify my CPU speed. it says 3.1 when I'm @ 3.7
