You actually can not, as the 7870 Tahiti LE only crossfires with a 7950/7970. The 7870 LE is actually a toned down 7950, using the Tahiti architecture instead of Pitcairn. Its not a beefed up 7870 like the misleading title presumes.

Not possible, AMD screwed up the LE naming.

Its really a 7930, and even then, I am not even sure if its crossfireable with the 7950/7970, as I think the 7870 LE has a 256 bit interface. Not sure, correct me if I'm wrong.

Short answer, no.

EDIT: Checked, and yes it can be crossfired with a 7950/7970, but it has to be clocked very very high to avoid microstuttering.

Crossfire doesn't work that way, the higher card gets capped at the lower cards specs so even though you CAN crossfire a 7870 le and a 7950 you would NEVER want to. Raising the clock doesn't really have anything to do with micro-stutter.
