I recently just build a gaming computer and my cousin suggested getting an HD5830 card. He told me i could do a crossfire with the onboard video, but i do not know if i have to connect it using the bridge or if it is set up on its own? I dont even know if this is possible but he said it was. So can someone answere:
1. can this type of crossfire be done?
2. iF it can be done how do i set it up?
3. And if it sets it self up how can i tell.

Im new to gaming computers so any answeres/ advice would greatlt help. thanks.

ATI dropped hybrid crossfire like a bad habit and for good reason, it was bad.

the only cards I recall you could use where the low end ones, ATI 3450, 4350, and 4550. They stopped support with the 5xxx series.

here is the ATI crossfire chart...and ATI has not updated it in months :heink: 

well if your motherboard supports CF (not just hybrid) and you have enough Power, you can certainly CF two ATI 5830. I believe the ATI 5870 also uses the same GPU but that would be a waste of money since you would see no increase from two ATI 5830 and I'm not sure its even possible.

for the same price as the ATI 5830, you can get the Nvidia GTX 460 or ATI 6850. Both are much better cards.
