  1. Hey guys I recently purchased a second xfx radeon hd 5770, but I have no crossfire bridge connector! I assumed there would be one, as on AMD's site it says they are included with the card. Here is the link to the card on newegg that I ordered: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150447

    Is there another way to connect them? Do I have to order a bridge connector? Please help.

    Hey wait I found a cheap HIS connector, will it work with xfx cards if it is an HIS bridge connector though?

    It will be working. Since every crossfire bridge is just to connect 2 radeon's together, as long as it is a crossfire bridge it can work.

    Well I got the only one they had on Newegg, which is actually an XFX one. It will be here next week and since my upgrades will not be needed until later this year I'm good.

    Hey did you order the bridge yet? I build custom gaming systems and I have a box full of them. If you Pm your address i will send you one on the house.
    to answer your other question, yes it will work, all they are for is load balancing and they are not brand specific.

    xfx also gives the crossfire connectors out for free. thats how i got mine, all you need to do is ask them for it and it'll be there in a few days at no charge to you.
