how to set it up?

Hello everyone.
After some helpfully advices from some nice guys on the forum I ended up to crossfire my hd 7970 with and r9 280x.

I am also upgrading ssd so I need a guide on how to set up the crossfire like on Windows install I should have already plug both gpus? With the crossfire bridge or no?

Do I need to make changes on my bios before doing so?

I have a gigabyte z77x-ud3h mobo.
It supports x16 and x8 pci express 3.0

Will I be fine with this?

Tnx you all in advance.

  1. I don't think you can crossfire a hd 7970 with a r9 280x? They both have to be the same chipset
  2. They are and they do crossfire pretty well. Kinda sure on that.
  3. http://www.game-debate.com/news/?news=10732 - 7970 and r9 280x are compatible for xfire.

    Put the second one in the 2nd pcie slot and attach the power supply connectors. Join the cards with a xfire bridge.

    Start the pc.

    Then go into Catalyst Control Center. It should have already enabled crossfire automatically.

    Yea but on Windows installation does it matter whether I have one or both gpus plugged in?
