Hi guys, I have a FirePro v5700 card installed on my computer. I was wondering if I can crossfire it with HD 4770, so that I can work and play games on one system. Is this possible?

Thank you,
Naveen

Crossfire works only with 2 identical cards with the exception of hybrid crossfire setups.

One word.
No.


Unless you have one of those MSI boards with a Lucid HYDRA installed.
Thos things can probably allow you to run a GeForce 7100 and an ATI 5970 together (though there is no point in doing something like that)

+1 Even if you could get it working, the faster card would scale down to the speed of the slower card, I am not sure how fast a FirePro v5700 is, but considering that they are completely different product lines I doubt they would play well together. If your in it for games I would stick with just the 4770.
