Well, I figured out what was wrong before with my computer.

My VisionTek 4870x2 card had taken a crap on me and started to get defective making my computer get progressively worse over time as the card became more defective.

Well in my remedy to solve the problem, I ordered two XFX 5770's to put in Crossfire in my case, but I have one problem. The cards didn't come with a Crossfire Bridge.

So, I am kind of on the look-out for a Crossfire Bridge that would work and be compatible with my two XFX 5770's. If anyone could help you would be a lifesaver.

I'm using the GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3R LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard, and ok Lmeow I'll check it out.

The GA-P55-UD3R's second PCI-E x16 slot runs at x4 bandwidth which will most likely cause performance issues.

If that is the case, then CrossFire does not seem to be a good option.

Ummm, I already researched that, and it only shows about a 5% performance decrease which makes it almost not matter. So, I'm not worrying about that.

What is my problem now is, I have found a Crossfire cable that works, but I need a 6-pin connector that is designed for my Thermaltake Toughpower 850W PSU....

What do you mean? Are there no six pin connectors that come with the Thermaltake PSU?

No, I do not have them and the Thermaltake 850W PSU I have has non-standard connectors because it is a modular PSU.
