You really need to edit your post to follow the format in the "How to ask for new build advice" sticky at the top of the forum. There's some basic info in there that we need in order to offer any meaningful advice.
One more question.. doin the crossfire do i need to get the same exact card, or can i jus get another video card that is crossfire ready?
man, what a luck, I didn't noticed you wanted xfire support, I've took that mb because th combo.
I think that you can take 2 different gpus because it is hybird xfire
but don't take my word, better wait for another more definitive answer
You can technically crossfire different cards, but it doesn't make any sense to do so. If you crossfire a 4870 and a 4850, the 4870 will just be dumbed down to the 4850 specs. It's much better to crossfire cards with the same specs. You don't have to choose the exact same manufacturer, but they should have the same specs.
