    there is only one PCIe 16x slot which means that it can only run one grapics card at a time.
    so no, you cannot crossfire graphics cards on this computer.

    and yes, 2 HD 5850s would be better than one Radeon HD 8570, but crossfire has limitations, get one card for the same price instead. one R9 270 will be a lot faster than 2 hd5850s.

    and the HD 8570 included in the computer is on the cpu, so that one has limitations as well
