Solved how to set it up? Tags: Video Settings Windows AMD Crossfire BIOS Graphics Last response: July 24, 2014 4:56 AM in Graphics & Displays Share matsamas July 24, 2014 4:24:29 AM 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.

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.
