Help with new build

this is the build that i have come up with. it is mainly for gaming and internet browsing. i have a laptop where i can do my work and all that good stuff.


processor-amd phenom x2 555-90.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103846

motherboard- asus m4a785td-v evo-99.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131398

it says the motherboard is a crossfire hybrid because it has integrated graphics. i plan on getting a 5770 eventually. my question is that if i were to get 2 5770s and disable the integrated could i use crossfire?
