I am going to be putting in a second radeon 5750 into my computer and i was just wondering if i will need any extra cables or anything. I have a PCI cable. but will i need a bridge or something to connect the two cards together?

Yes, you will need a Crossfire bridge. Is your motherboard Crossfire compatible?

As long as by "PCI cable" you mean a power cable.

Yes. Just install the 2nd card, connect the crossfire bridge (usually comes with the card bundle) then turn on your PC. CCC should detect your card & prompt you if you want to enable crossfire. If it doesn't, just go the CCC menu to enable manually. That's all there is to it.

Crossfire bridge usually comes with CF compatible motherboard, not graphics card.

Two out of two cards I've gotten came with a bridge.

Both of my 7970s came with bridges and my motherboard.
