  1. Best answer
    The 7870 graphics cards support crossfire. Your motherboard is capable of doing crossfire, just be aware to put the graphic cards in the x16 slots. Here's an interconnetor for your graphic cards http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004RIOFPM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1371348144&sr=1-1&pi=SL75
    Your power supply unit will be enough to power your rig with one graphic card.
  2. Well your motherboard supports crossfire and as long as you don't mix a 7870xt with a regular 7870 you can crossfire them. The crossfire cable I'm not sure as 1 came with my motherboard and not the vid card. A 500w PSU will probably not be enough to run crossfire, AMD recommends a minimum of a 600w PSU. This would be a good PSU to get, it's a trusted brand, it's 80+ gold certified and modular. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151118
