Sorry for the noob question..
This is my build. Can I cross fire the saphire 7850 with any other 7850 gpu? Or does the graphics card have to be exactly the same?
For example can I use a vision tek 7850 like this one

Thanks! :)

great thanks!
Is there a way to know which gpu's I'll be able to crossfire together and which ones I won't?

In general the can be crossfired if the first two numbers are in the same. You'd never want to do a 7870 and 7850 though as the stronger card would be crippled to match the lower.card, and it's be a waste of money. Therefore it's usually better of they match exactly. It's just a nice option in case you can't find a perfect match later.
