Well the main purpose of Hybrid CrossFire is to CrossFire a low-end card with the integrated card,so i think u can CrossFire a HD 4870 with the HD 3200 but its useless because the performance gain won't be noticeable

different chipsets?? ROFL Video cards dont have chipsets buddy!

The hybrid crossfire only works with lower end video cards.

but it will still work right. i am wandering that is it better to cross fire cos if u leave it at idle it will use the 3200 not the 4970 and also don't waste the 3200 gc
