hi everyone, im building a pc for my friend and he wants to crossfire two cards. but the DIAMOND Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Support Video Card says that its crossfire ready but there is no place to hook up a crossfire bridge so will it still work without it.

I would advise him from doing so that being crossfire. A 7770 costs around 130 dollars on sale so that would be around 260 if he were to buy 2 cards. I would suggest that he look at a 7870ghz edition or quite possibly a 660Ti which will beat up a 7870.

A 7750 can do crossfire but it doesn't use a crossfire bridge. Also, you can crossfire a 7770 and a 7750 even though the 7770 does have a crossfire bridge. The motherboard must support Crossfire X for it to work however.

Also, as bigshootr8 mentioned, if your friend can afford it, just use the money for a better card. The 7770 at $115 - $130 is a good card, the GTX650 Ti at $150 is also good. However, the best cards for the money currently are the 7850's. A 1GB 7850 is about $170 and the 2GB cards are closer to $200.

True I was just thinking of the performance one would get above what he was suggesting with a single card and the price he would of spent.
