Yeah, it depends on your board though whether or not you'll be able to hybrid crossfire. The feature is only on boards with AMD chipsets in the 7 and 8 series but the gain with is small, so I suggest just using your card and possibly getting it a buddy (crossfire)

my understanding is that they have to be the same series
like a 6750 and a 6150 (not actual cards)
s you couldn't use a 6750 and a 9800

Quote:
The requirements of a ATI Hybrid CrossFire system are:
ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 Series, ATI Radeon™ HD 3400 Series or ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3400 Series graphics processor

ATI Radeon™ HD 2400 supports only ATI Hybrid CrossFireX™ technology and ATI SurroundView™ technology

A motherboard based on an AMD 780G or AMD 790GX integrated chipset

So, no. It wouldn't be worth trying to get a compatible card as the 2XXX and 3XXX series are far beyond obsolete by today's tech.
