CrossfireX - Very confused?

I've been building Home Theater / Hyperspin gaming PC's for a while now. Recently, someone asked me to build a little higher end rig. So, here's what I got:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99FX (with crossfireX support)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131851

2 x XFX R7 260x 2GB Video Cards
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150689

Now... The video card box and the page claims crossfire support, so I ordered the Bridge as well. Being very familiar with Nvidia's SLI configuration, I knew I would need the bridge. However, I just opened the box for the first card and there is no bridge slot on the video card(s). The box says it has crossfire support, newegg says it has crossfire support, and the XFX's website says it has crossfire support, but does it?

If so, is it handle by the motherboard and doesn't need the bridge? Or am I out of luck and need to RMA the cards for cards with a bridge?

More about crossfirex confused
  1. pcie 3.0 is enough so no need for cfx bridge..
    just plug and play then enable cfx in CCC
  2. The cards will do crossfireX throught the PCI-E lanes, look into the AMD CCC and just configure it.
  3. Thank you both very much. I was worried. It takes a while for Newegg get through newegg's rma process.

    Thanks, again.

    I read that same article and it was confusing, but everyone else is right. It does support Crossfire.

    I have checked the amd website and noticed the new gen cards don't need the bridge I admit my info was wrong but there is no need to be childish and insulting is there ?
