Hello,

I am building a new gaming rig with the a Asus Crosshair III Formula Motherboard and 2 Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 Crossfire video cards.

MY question is; Do I need to buy anything else to run Crossfire, or does everything I need come with the video cards?

This is my first time running 2 video cards.

Thank you.

Assuming a crossfire bridge comes with the cards, no.

OK, thanks. Do you just plug in the the DVI cable in one of the video cards, or the top one? I thought I saw one time that there was a dongle that you plugged in the back of each video card on the DVI port and they went into one connector where you plug in the monitor cable.
