    yes you can crossfire on that board howver the second PCI-e slot is only x4 mode so it will have crap performance
    tl;dr yes you can, but dont
  2. Also with that PSU you wont have the power to Crossfire most of the listed GPU's.

    You would at least need to have 500w but i would get a 600w or higher.
  6. wait, are you trying to use 2 cards in a crossfire setup or just one graphics card?

    if you want to use just one then thats fine, thou upgrade the psu if you are going to get 7970 or 7950. 7870 and below should work just fine if your current psu is a good quality one.

    i am planning to use just 1 graphics card.and what is the use of using 2 graphics card at the same time?

    twice the power? (disclaimer: your results may vary depending on games and other system components)

    and that is what crossfire stands for, dual or multi gpu setup with amd/ati cards, with nvidia it is called SLI. You managed to confuse people by mentioning crossfire in the opening post... ;)
